Man's Favorite Gort

He is featureless, space-borne and shiny
Have a seat, human race, you're too tiny
Gort will heed each directive
And indeed he's reflective
You can see your own face in his heinie.

Patricia Neal  observes Gort the robot (Lock Martin) in The Day the Earth Stood Still (Robert Wise; 1951).
