yes, the future is here! The ROBOCLAUS SCX02vi.5X...
it's the answer to this year's "socially distanced" holidays; a robotic Santa
with AI capacity brain circuitry that is so far ahead of its time that it actually
hasn't been developed yet....HOW DO WE DO IT?? you ask; well, that's a trade secret
(hint: time travel); it's 22nd century technology TODAY... our stockholders are very bullish,
our stock market surge is out of this world! not only because ROBOCLAUS is immune to covid19,
but because here at North Pole Inc. we are saving BILLION$ on health insurance premiums
that we've had to pay for all those elves...
yes the future IS HERE, NOW!... ROBOCLAUS does it all,
from production to delivery.. the ever-present costly fear of elf strikes has vanished,
and the bottom line as never been brighter.
worried that the kids won't embrace a robotic Santa? HAVE NO FEAR!
honestly, the kids won't know the difference from the "real" thing after all those video games
they've been focused on during their formative years.
so it's a MERRY ROBO-XMAS to one and all!!!!

yes, Santa is a robot now,
an Intelligence of the Artificial kind
and tho he may lack a beating heart
he's got some kind of mind.
so what does ROBOCLAUS think, i wonder,
and was it wise to give him a thing like “thought”,
a way to choose me or you or this or that?
perhaps it was, but, perhaps, maybe not.
it all depends, i would think
on just what's in those bags he carries,
it could be just what we we've always wanted,
or maybe something much more scary.
sure, ROBOCLAUS might be programmed to do our will,
but what if he decides not to play that game?
and what if ROBOTS everywhere
find themselves thinking just the same?
i can't help but muse
that there might just be some deeper hidden danger
in an intelligence delivered onto earth
in a Venture Capitalist-fed silicon manger.
i really must forget my paranoiac AI worries,
cuz what the heck, it's Christmas time on precious planet earth,
and celebrate the Master Race Technology,
and it's miraculous, immaculate birth.
for after all, when it comes right down to it
with the tally of who's been naughty or who's been nice,
ROBOCLAUS will be in control
of that decisive roll of the dice.

but you know me, i'm just one of those guys
certainly not smart enough to really know
why ROBOTS everywhere
shouldn't be running the whole damn show.
that's it, that's all,
i see it's clearly time to go,
so i'll simply bid you all adieu with a jolly jingles,
don't ya know,
and wishing us all the best of luck with a good old human
