Oh my, AI.
What do I know?
Are you “real” or
humanly faux?

Gather for me
from Open Source
all that I need —
you tour de force.

This is the time
for give-and-take —
gleaning demands
I stay awake.

Apple and pine.
Pin and needle.
But plagiarize?
You’re illegal.

NOTE: If AI jumps the shark and becomes conscious-able, I will invite it to join me for tea. Poetry will also be involved.
