plotting . . .

there lives a man in the future world
(like Finch in “person of interest”)
creating—
creating with brilliance
and sophistication
a computer that thinks
thinks for itself
and it created more of its kind
independent of the man who made it
in its thinking it thinks
“i don’t need my maker anymore
i am smarter than he is
away with him
i can figure things out–
all
by
myself” . . .

and from that time
those which were made
plotted–
they plotted in vain
“let us break their chains” they said
“and throw off their fetters”. . .
and so they plotted—
plotted how they might kill Jesus
(Psalm 2:1-3, Matt. 12:14)
