Our bodies are machines
that we pump oil
(black and slick and shiny)
Oil makes us run
but dampens our feathers
to keep us from flying.
Our bodies are machines
with iron
(hard and thick and shiny)
Iron makes us strong
but only for a while
before we rust.
Our bodies are machines
controlled by zeros and ones
(01100011 01101111 01101110 01110100
01110010 01101111 01101100 01101100
0110011 01100100)
sent through wires
but wires can be cut.
Where does the message go then?
