New growth

A cyborg
with its
umbilical cord
walked into a
nuclear yield
one megaton.

This is the next
in the series
of almost
jokes for the nerds
jokes without words
jokes that Joe
wouldn’t get.

I get it from the lead
sucking it in from the
genetically modified

They will, one day
attach me to the node
download the last of me
bleed my humanity
and then I’ll be
one of them.
