Is this the brainy outcast little girl,
Now a well-respected scientist, renowned throughout the world?
She still recalls her childhood too well
When other children's taunts could scorch, beneath her icy shell:
Well there goes Susan Calvin: The Thinker, done in drag!
No man will ever touch her. She’ll grow old an unloved hag.
No wonder, after that, if something dies. . .
But now she'll have the chance to prove them lies!
The robot waits impassively below,
But he wrestles with a conflict, such as only robots know:
The man's no more enamored than he seems;
But perhaps it will work out somehow, like romance novel dreams.
He's made for serving humans, and keeping them from harm,
And he could no more break a heart than break a human's arm.
The First Law of Robotics still applies:
Her heart will break unless he tells her lies.
