> The stone canal is a canal of stone
> Built by a robot, one robot alone.
> And you never saw a canal straighter than that canal of stone
> For it leads from Ship City to the dead gods' bones.
> There the gods sleep, and all of our own dead,
> Sleeping forever upon a stone bed.
> While the comet-ice falls down from overhead,
> Bringing new world's water down the stone canal bed.
> But someday the gods shall wake,
> The dead shall rise, and the stone canal break.
And the gods go forth, as the old book spake,
To the robot and the canal and the Ship remake.
Apologies if that's not how you wanted to end it, but I'm not exactly
clear on what this poem is about. The cooling unit for a cryonics
