When Scientists Have Analysed You and Me

To the nth degree,
And found that there is nothing ethereal
And we are merely
Genetic material,

Left of you and me
Save for genes
And mechanical dreams?

Why this disdain
For the rain?
Tis the sense
That all our expense
Is vain
While the rain
Will remain.

Who remarked “when we are dead, we are dead”.
He went to Hell
Where the Devil does dwell,
That unfortunate young materialist named Ted!
