a million million bodies that look like me
eyes staring up but finally free
silence on the line in the fields of war
nothing moving but the drip of gore

ancient and ugly it finally woke
opened its eyes and trembling, spoke
in an alien voice it called to me
didn't want to look but turned to see

all of my backups, gone for naught
across the galaxies of course we fought
backed into corners and finally found
last thing we hear is a crunching sound

torn up circuits and piles of gears
oceans of blood and a lake of tears
silence on the line in the fields of war
nothing moving but the drip of gore

across a gulf of a billion trillion miles
nothing for company but beeps and dials
launched from here into eternity
one last me with eyes to see

crackle of static on the last open line
velvety black off the stern input tine
the line goes dead and i'm all alone
silence on the line and time to atone
