Dearest muse of aesthetics I ask of thee
Tell us the ambivalent life of “Theophany”
Tell us her engendering encounters and end
Tell us so that we may comprehend

Pariah of Heaven and rejected from hell
Artificially made, but real as you can tell
For she had feelings, ever so meek and mild
But to others she was nothing more but God’s Stepchild

The time is set to post-apocalyptic Earth
Chaos broke out and morals lost their worth
The population decreased by starvation
Nuclear waste caused pollution.

One man rose and brought words of hope
People worshipped him, but let it be known
That underneath this kind persona of trust
He wanted to turn the world into dust

Forged in secrecy “The Seventeenth Dimension”
Sought out to end this ugly corruption
For this man was sinister and very evil
He lied, killed, and mistreated his people

An electric engineer flees to this hidden society
With an idea of creating a “deity”
Before he made robots of malevolence
Decided to make one of benevolence

This vulpine scientist invented a machine
He could transfer his emotions into his “assignee”
Theophany was the name given to his creation
He gave her that name because of its definition

She was a humanoid and she looked so real
She could speak, but she couldn’t feel
So he rewired Theophany to have “feeling”
Also implanted happy, sad, and curiosity

But betrayal was upon them, a “Judas”, a traitor
We do not know who, but we’ll find out later
Little did the scientist knew, he was caught
He was murdered before his “child” could be taught

Theophany was created to save mankind
But he failed to put a conscience in her mind
Though she possessed some basic emotions
She lacked judgment, hate, and sadly…compassion
