Flowers for Asimov

Metal shortages
Impose a new robotics:
Building with flowers.

Chlorophyll conducts
The electronic impulse
Better than copper.

Plus, user feedback,
When diodes turn to petals,
Boosts dramatically.

In summer, the streets
Unfold fluorescent colour
As AI blossoms.

Low-carbon, low-cost,
Even their waste products form

We're still exploring
The healthcare applications;
Android therapy.

—William Shaw
