He evaluated his future how this body ached
knowing death was very near
time was not a friend but a nagging enemy
even his plan was complicated
surrounded by computer screens and android
at this moment life was void!
Not for him the cryogenics route to being frozen
not the body or even the head
his aim was to transfer his mind into a robot
had to be reliable to his design
that moment was at last within his embrace
as he looked at the young face!
Had to admit it this body was a true likeness
of himself at twenty-two
this was exciting knowing he would not decay
with no human frailties
living on without the limitation of human time
would remain in his prime!
It was a risk but was resigned if he expired
at least knew he had tried
being frail it was hard to connect the wires
could not share his secret
hated the so-called friends that mocked him
his view of them was dim!
Smiled it made his face even more grotesque
next to the still perfect android
both connected to computers and each other
with a bony decaying finger
struggled to hit the enter key then it began
executing his mind transference plan!
His body writhed as his memories and essence
were drained the computers flashed
leaving the empty corpse upon the leather chair
for a few minutes nothing moved
the light show stopped and death was present
his mind and body was spent!
Realisation that he was alive in some capacity
took a few minutes to register
for the first time the android rotated its head
the scientist transfer a success
slowly standing up coordination was unsteady
it would be awhile before he was ready!
How extraordinary no pain his thoughts clear
with a new perfect vessel
no fear of ageing or human functions to impair
after disposing of his own corpse
could start his new life nothing to hold him back
he would make sure the future was black!
The taxi he had just rang for arrived swiftly
awkwardly the young man got in briskly
nothing could ever be the same for us again
with the creators malevolent destructive reign
now into androids a mind could be transferred
the notorious this method would be preferred!
Immortality had come for whom could pay the price!
