they know

Have you noticed
how nowadays
people build robots
shaped like people
to ask them what
the meaning of life is?

In the past, they used to ask 
kids or dogs
so they can have a laugh
or witches, gods,
prison cells, 
each other
or themselves
so they could maybe
put an end to this question.

and now robots…
they will give answers
like all the others have tried
but it will not be THE answer
because we are too in love with the
to accept any answer.

i know my dog knows
and i respect his secrecy
until the time is right 
for me to know
for me to see
the answer.
