When Robots Learn to Paint

When robots learn to paint

all us artists will be out of work

cause we’ll just get the robots to do it cause after manufacturing them, robots will be

programmed to paint for free

proving the soul is overrated

at least from a marketing point of view.

Oh, my robot could paint that!

That’s a beautiful abstract. Is that a Jackson Pollack? It’s a robot? Excellent. Inspired.

Teach robots to paint and weep.

Make them poets with a paint brush

and it’s the end of the world cause then we’d really have lost our souls

when we can’t sense the alms of another who offers it to us in a frame.

      Betty! We’re all eating the poisoned bread that makes us mad, just some of us have to remember that’s what we’re doing. Thank you for being within earshot of my scream and caring enough to shout back.

    I am screaming with you and with Betty here, Peter–Wewill sell our artist’s souls if we don’t run very, very fast away from the robots programmed to tempt us!
