Without a Heart

Intellect and blind sensation
Intuition and the feelings of the heart
Scientists made the incision
They left the poetry within the dark

Computer-age, they think they know it all,
when truly they can only count to two.
The three and four that learn to dance
have never had a chance with them.

Mechanically inclined, they line
the wall with specimens.
Poke and cut, remove the gut,
and stuff the shell with chemicals.

What hope has our humanity
of ever living on, without a heart...?
