He's the latest super hero with powers so profound
He can leap a dotted line in just a single bound,
I know you must have seen him in books and magazines,
He's the quintessential mindless modern epicene,
His life is meaningful because he get things done,
Bang bang he's dead
Chalk up another triumph for our hero,
The automatic man
It's true you must have met him, 
He's your best friend and your foe,
His opinions are determined by the status quo,
A true creature of habit, he smokes three packs a day,
When he has an original thought he forgets it right away
He's a paradigm of carefree living,
He's our mentor disturb him if you can,
He's the answer if your peace of mind is lacking,
He's our savior,
He is the common man
So if you are troubled by the daily bump and grind,
Then take a careful look around your brother
You will find . . . the automatic man.
