Our New Robot

Last night Daddy bought us a robot
To help with the housework and whatnot.

It can cook fine cuisine
That is fit for a queen.
It can clean all the rooms
With its high tech brooms.
It can wash dirty clothes
Till they smell like a rose.

This robot is one of the latest inventions,
And I know Daddy had the best of intentions,
But it was so very expensive, you see,
The loan won't be paid till I'm thirty-three.

So Dad says we must take the greatest of care
Not to harm it or cause any wear and tear.
So Mom does the laundry and makes our lunch,
While Dad cleans the house and I serve the punch.

And what, you might ask, does the robot do?
He just sits by the window, enjoying the view.
