It Won't Take Long

She is the queen of the replacements
Her people await further orders in a large open-air building
A former factory - old and gray and damp, it looks like the 1950's

Levels of pleasure barely measure a blip
Nothing works and it is no longer on a list or discussed in conversation
The terminated plan of action awaits a jumpstart from a newly introduced source

When that happens, it won't take long for marching armies of fanciers
Go-go boots, bare midriffs, and concealed contempt
Past denigrators in fields of expulsion

They prop up the nerves
Defend the battery and spank the loyal
Animate the mechanical corpse
Put words in mouths that might generate feeling and that someone might find interesting
