24. Poetry by Brian LeBansky

Art by Paulo Sayeg | Ogum

Tesla Humanoid Robots

Tesla humanoid robots
work done for us
for universal wages

ushers in a new age
gentlemen spend time
creating art and poems

Dojo, DeepMind,
Palantir and ChatGPT
Mankind’s next step

feeding on plastic

Dyson sphere
captures Sol’s energy

controls all the weather

slingshot to stars
from a moon base

asteroid mining
unlimited resources

Earth as an Ark
all species can now thrive

Brian LeBansky

Brian LeBansky teaches high school science and enjoys playing music and writing songs. He has written fan fiction for his YouTube channel and wrote some poetry while in college, but lately haiku and scifaiku have been keeping him busy and entertained. While a doctoral student at Texas A&M University, Brian separated a protein (purple acid phosphatase) from the other 42 million proteins in the cell, chemically characterized it, and published the results [click the author link for the science journal in which the paper was published]. Brian’s work has appeared in The Starlight SciFaiku Review, The Flying Saucer Poetry Review, The Space Cadet Science Fiction Review, and The Lotus Tree Literary Review.
