Is that a peak or a volcano?
So far up it’s hard to tell
Like those rocket drones that bring hot meals
Higher apogees than flying banks
When warm got too hot
You air-conditioned the atmosphere
Engineered oceans to carbon sinks
Programmed plankton to eject hydrogen
Self-mutating bugs transform manufacturing
But do you really want viruses smarter than you?
Staring at the smog shrouding the bridge to hell
Is it your plan to sprint on through?
We don’t need water, just stars
Physics makes our guts and brains
We’re set to design new dimensions
Clean out a few old ones
So sad that peak is a volcano
Don’t worry: you’ll be remembered
