Quixotic Robot Quests

Teflon starships ply the inky depths [N]

In search of life on other planets [smrtypnts]

Riding on the streaming solar winds [N]

Piloted by robot-gods [F]

No-one comprehends the odds [N]

An aimless, endless quest, so it seems [F]

But hopeful dreamers watch its progress [N]

Dreaming of the time when humankind [F]

Finds that it is not alone [N]

Something we have always known [F]
