Anti-Depressants

The organic machine: humanity.
Nervous sparks light up limbs,
chemicals catalyze love into hate,
variables calculate will.
Product: action or inaction–flight
or fight magnetic attraction–
fusion or fission–propulsion,
repulsion–latency to ping,
hardware physical binaries
crashing with emotions.

A service pack will patch the bugs.
Side effects include disabled
felicity, fertility, possibilities
of senility. But promises
of stability are worth the beta test.
Reverse engineer hopes frozen
by memory leaks, hack the brain,
kill the inner daemons, restart
to apply the changes–fallen man
becomes automaton.
