A Biomimetics Poem by Bioman

Keratin, cellulose, chitin, collagen and bone

Are all we have to build everything

But it should do

Said the He man in charge

Five types of eyes, wings in pairs

Except for insects

Friction and glue

Before horses were invented.

The Cambrian Age saw the explosion

Which is still falling out

Of the stars as we evolve

Under radiation.

The light with which we see

Opened their eyes

In the murky depths

Of the primordial soup.

Now we are almost on Mars

On a vector to the South Seas

Of existence

Look Ma! No wheels!
