They want the workers to be hidden in plain sight

Pose like models

Frozen against their will like mannequins

Only talk when spoken to

Stick to the commands they've been programmed with

Everything else in their lives has been automated

Their tolerance and patience is tuned like the volume button

They're wired to use anything but their brain

But still be nonetheless useful,

like a doorman,

gesturing like a tour guide

presenting on full display to customers

the great wide outdoors,

the bottom of the ocean they will never get touch,

the wilderness they will never get to tame
