Gathering Intel

The forehead opens up to the left
a blue gloved scientist peeks inside,
he smiles as he examines the workings;
LED lights flash and microprocessors buzz quietly
and the droid for his part, waits
as if this were a usual exam

a small set of tweezers move in and out,
a tool pokes into a lateral aperture
and shifts down, then out,
the researcher sighs and after a last look
closes him back up
"all set to go, remember blend in Charlie."

they do a battery of 47 tests on the new adjustment,
elapsed time 2,000,000,000s of a second
test number 46 is a little off,
but still within normal limits
 a young observing assistant asks
"Why that Dr.?"
