“Gradual Apocalypse”

he refers to them as
talking heads or potato people
they emulate human behavior
wrap cloth about their skin
and make noises with their faces
but they aren’t real people
they possess no mind, nor will
independent of someone else
standing only to be seen
their principles are borrowed
and exist in a constant state of flux
until they are to be regurgitated again
but only when it seems fitting
when did this become the standard
by which we are determined human
how have we become so lost
that humanity is often confused
for mimicry
we fear robots, or zombies,
some other foreign entity
taking over the world
infiltrating our society
exaggerated revisions of the same truth
the reality is
they’ve already won
and we didn’t even notice
