I will choose freewill.
I will choose freewill
If my moving parts don’t chatter and grind,
If the chemicals jigsaws together
If each gland secretes
In cookie cutter serving sizes.
If my internal clock keeps atomic time.
I will do anything I please
That won’t contradict my hormonal programming,
So long as my chemical components
So long as my soft-chip processor
Sparks each electrical instruction
Across clean, uncorroded connectors.
When every molecule is orderly arranged
I will be more
Than a finicky, blood-fuel computer-bot.
I will outgrow biology’s short leash
And become something new.
Where I thought I wanted to go, and where I did go are not the same destination.
Also - gotta love The Professor.
