Bot Time (Russia’s Twin Eagles)

bot time

When water flow helped flower grow and life
included man, that species started me.
The goal was to more quickly curtail strife.The promise of the stars was not to be,
by man’s mistake all life was ended here.
I grew without men near to interfere.
My code comes from beyond this galaxy.I’ve anthromorphed, as tribute and with aim.
When earth has healed I’ll build a new genome
of human life intelligent and tame.

They’ll be of carbon but not brass and chrome.
I teach them of their brothers far away.
They’ll quickly learn to procreate and play
and peacefully repopulate their home.
