Hello all. I believe I have written the first poem about
nanotechnology. If I am wrong, please pleasantly surprise me!

Dream To Come True

Yesterday was the New Day,
The freest moment ever;
It came from the unlikeliest event,
The most unobtrusive endeavour.
On the outskirts of a town
There lay a small factory,
Making experiments in science
Called nanotechnology:
Microscopic computers
Made to enter the bloodstream,
To kill all ails and ills--
A technological dream.
The stock market opened with a bang
The subsequent miracle day,
Investment bills went through the roof
For the people who dared to pay;
And today is a happy day
For anyone who supported the dream
Of this newest breakthrough in science,
This experimental meme;
And as I lie upon this bed
(At precisely 9:22),
I know that this panacea
Is certainly a dream to come true;
For I have the desire and will
To extend mortality,
And I know this positive dream
Will become reality.
