Letter 'Q'

Quasi is a robot who's able to converse!
(I wonder, can he also write silly things in verse?)
He's an anthropomorphic humanoid! How's that for a title?
Of course he has to be programmed! That's absolutely vital.
He's a lot clever than us because his googly eyes
Not only register pleasure, anger and surprise,
But they also change their colour according to his mood!
Compared to his our human eyes are really rather crude!
His eyes can swivvle up and down, the lids can move as well,
So he can be quite expressive when he has a tale to tell!
His antennae have been programmed in the manner of dogs' ears;
He can wiggle them according to the various things he hears.
His speech has been recorded, so this aspect is slim;
We have to gauge expressions if we want to speak to him.
I think that he looks rather sweet, in a robotic way.
But 'Give me a real-life squeezy man!' that is what I say!
Robots in love here:

Not familiar with Quasi; could have used him NEXT week as well!

Sylvia K said...

Yep! I'm for a real-life squeezy man myself! Delightful, fun words as always, Brenda! Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!

This reminds me of Isaac Asimov and his Laws of Robotics, but I suppose you know them.

Well done!

I'm all for a real life squeezy man myself too. Great verse and quite clever. I always enjoy visiting your blog. Its so original.

I had never heard of Quasi, but think he's rather cute as robots go. But I prefer real humans even if they're less efficient.

What a fun read...and a great Q.

Robots may take over one day, BUT THEY SURE CANNOT KEEP YOU WARM ON A COLD DAY. I will take a human being any time over something cold. Thanks for your visit today.

Enjoyed that - especially the last line. I also like what you say about Wootton Bassett in the previous post. As a Brit, that place expresses all that I think good about my country.

Delightful verse- He sounds like so much fun!
Terrific choice of a q word I've not seen yet in my ABC rounds.

Great fun - he looks rather adorable to me and I'll bet one could program him to be squeezy. Maybe? Fun words.

Is that not the coolest thing?

At first, I thought the reference was to "quasai". We'll have to save that for the next round if we can remember!

You are so good : ) And creative out the wazoo!

Jay said...

Hahaha! Yes, I'll take that real life squeezy man over a robot any day. Though there is (of course) Data ... LOL!
