Bizarre In Mitochondria #Haiku #Poetry

A haiku written by Lee Sonogan

Bizarre Microbe Is Devoid Of Mitochondria, Cell's Powerhouse

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened. – Douglas Adams

Microbe outré devoid,

Eat shit until can’t taste it,

Cytoplasm fungoid.

Our terminal decline into old age and death stems from the fine print of the contract that we signed with our mitochondria two billion years ago. Nick Lane
