Flunking the Turing Test. A Poem by Becca Menon

                           Come on, body, what’s with the chronic wincing
                           We’ve heard these gripes before.  What good do they do?
                           Stop whining!  And anyhow, who’s in there?  Are you
                           Even real, like really the Real Me, the Pain Me – or Not-Me?
                           Belly, “You’re hungry!” and “Ow!” just aren’t convincing.
                           Ears?  Eyes?  Hacked or hackneyed…  I? think? I’m a Bot-me.
