[News item: A roundworm that spent the last 46,000 years in suspended animation in the Siberian permafrost has been revived by scientists.]

Unike God,
Nature's open
To all possibilities.

It will slay me for sure,
But if i can figure a way
Out to stay longer, or even
Much longer, it won't prevent

Me. Long as i, or science knows
What it's doing, it's open to my plans.

Meanwhile, i can write poetry or sleep,
Or work hard, or go deep into anything
I like. Sometimes i like Nature much more

Than God.
No need to pretend it's anything more than it is.
