Who creates an artificial womb?
Who spends their time in a room
of polished plastic thinking – fantastic
I’ll first make a womb for a sheep
Then later, for other things
like a car or just oil in a sac
then later still, human wombs can dangle
growing the next crop of office workers.
does money do that?
And then automatically flash pictures across
all its wires
so fast that progress happens
And no one has to do
Thinks – first I’ll make a womb for a womb
And then grow wombs from them
but what was the problem again?
Today… what did I do at work..
But someone’s made a womb for a bomb
That’s a little strange
What if it goes off?
We can save with a womb
But carefully, oh so carefully
Don’t get over excited
Womb-born hearts still pump, pump
And bleed nicely
Getting born is just slightly more difficult.
We’ll just straddle the knife edge of getting born
