Day 9 – “If We All Were Robots”


“If We All Were Robots” by Jaymie Gerard


If we all were robots

Instead of girls and boys

Maybe we’d have humans

To play with as our toys


We’d keep them in our closets

And take them out for games

We’d dress them up in little clothes

And give them funny names


We’d take them to the marketplace

We’d take them to the pool

We’d listen to them singing songs

And send them off to school


We’d see them getting taller

We’d help them as they grow

We’d wish that they’d get smaller

But they don’t do that, you know


They’d grow up to be astronauts

And presidents and kings

We’d pretend that we were humans

So we could do human-like things


So we might as well be humans

If we ever get the choice

‘Cause who’d want to be robots

When we could be girls or boys?
