What silly substance seals your engine
While it lubricates your brakes,
Also keeps your hands from burning
And won’t stick to baking cakes?
What magic metal polymer
Helps to make your dry flies float
All while doing double duty
Shedding raindrops from your coat.
When it’s in its other form
A partner at both work and play
This stuff makes computers work
And lets you use your phone all day.
You can’t escape this silly stuff; it’s always within easy reach
In every sky high satellite and under foot on every beach.

Surely I wasn’t the only one thinking this was going somewhere else…!! Fun poem, thought provoking on all (most) things silicon. Love it!
