Mach one point four

I’m being mechanised
integrated into modern
which is a take on machinery
and it’s the best I could do.

think I am through with
the cuckoo clock,
I am being touted as
new on the block,
but you know that I’m not.

I’m being marketed
packaged and sold
told I’m a failure
and that doesn’t work for me

I get the message though,
being in is the new out
I know.

sharp shooters,
there’s a reason they rhyme
but machinery don’t have the
to explain.
