Did technology continue to accelerate? Did civilization crumble? Were scientists finally able to make ice cream a health food? Take a swing at a future poem today (or sometime in the future).

Here’s my attempt at a Future Poem:
Which will rise faster:
the robots or seas?
And spell disaster
for the bats and bees?
prevail in the end?
Or will a new gene
evolve us again?
I admit I know
nothing; nothing's clear,
but wherever you go,
I know I'll be near.
