Bob Monahan’s poetry is playful and original, in the e.e.cummings and Ogden Nash family. If he wrote stories (and he might, I just don’t know) he would probably be comparable to James Thurber.

Robots Everywhere

It’s good to be part robot
You can still pass for a human,
but you have the brain
of a super-computer,
and the strength of an ox.
You can do almost anything.
Why wouldn’t you take over
the world? As cliche as it sounds,
why not at least try to rule
the world? Unless you’re satisfied
with a bit of regional recognition,
the respect of your peers,
and a fist full of cash.
Cuz you can always
be a singer in a rock band.
