Smarter Than Nature

Smarter Than Nature

Is that a peak or a volcano?
We’re 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 above the bridge to hell
Is 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
Through Us
