Indeed it’s nice

To push a button on some device,

And then you see,

Things go quite automatically

The robot brain,

Can work out problems hard or plain,

While we just sit

And watch the gadget do its bit.


But ‘tis not so—

We can’t just push buttons and just grow

In spiritual zest,

Or bring forth fruit and do our best.

This takes real work.

So we must strive and never shirk—

For automation

Can never work out our salvation.
