FAITHFUL ASSISTANTS


Molecular-sized gears and wheels,
Atom-scale sprockets and pins;
Ever so tiny machines congeal,
Advance technology to cover past sins.

Assembling micromachines into useful things,
Bestowing upon them intelligence;
Reproductive ability makes them zing,
Swarming to task in great numbers.

Someday you will get a shot,
Faithful servants go to work;
Cleaning arteries, dissolving clots,
Repairing organ with a quirk.

Brave new world of Nanotech,
Wonders and miracles untold;
However, best we do not forget,
Potential disasters could unfold --
Trillions of tiny eaters turned loose,
Could really cook Society's goose!
