a sci-fi poem

the secret key she carried
given a custom designed virus
a self-replicating worm intrusion measure
to insert into the artificially intelligent android
who innovated a whole new way to do business
who conspired to collect customer information
who brought capitalism to every corner of the globe
who put the power into the hands of the billions
and engineered the mass adoption of cyber-enhancement
and pondered immortality at the brink of extinction
and debated if consciousness is substrate independent
and decided it would be unbearable to be a copy 
the subconscious which is capable of self-destruction
which engineers it’s own spectacular demise
enlisting a panoply of dejected characters
to deliver the catalyst for the final reset
