Biomedical Engineering Is Not For Everyone - Poem by George Hinshaw

The princess kissed the frog,
And he became a handsome young prince.
Very dramatic restructuring!
Pretty spectacular, but when you think about it,
He still had a true backbone and general internal skeleton
In either case.
Greenhouse effect? Technology or ideology?
On TV the interviewer asked:
"How did you feel?
"Did you have an overwhelming urge to know human consciousness?
"Did you consider yourself operationally limited?
"How did you like being a tadpole?
Or were you?"
"Had the princess always been a mammal?
And, of course:
"Have you considered a possible series?"
