I woke up (or did I?)
In a future world of robots.
I must have been transported
Through a portal made of blurred dots!
I looked around me, filled with fear,
I couldn't believe my eyes!
Up above, what made me jump?
Flying cars zoomed through the skies!
And when I looked closer still,
What fully filled me with dread
In the windows of each metal beast
Was what looked like a robot head!
In front were glass skyscrapers,
Linked by transparent tubes.
They towered up to the highest level,
Filled with robotic cubes.
I scarpered fast from the hill
That I had stood upon.
I was searching for that portal but
I found that it was gone!
I was tired and I wanted a bed,
I looked around aghast.
And then I found some nice soft soil
And fell asleep real fast.
I woke up with a dreadful start,
I was in my bed!
Had the portal put me back there...
Or was it all a dream instead?
