Last night I dreamed that
I was at a state dinner
With the president

When I approached him
I could hear the gears moving
Proving that he was

An automaton
At some point he fell over
Or someone pushed him

His head cracked open
Exactly like a statue
That has been toppled

We left him there and went home
