Net Minder

I'm a brain-in-vat
That's connected to the Net,
And I think that that
Is as vast as I can get.

Now, you need not doubt
That my body once was flesh,
Till I wore it out;
Now my brain lives in a mesh.

There are many things
Keeping me awake at nights,
Such as ponderings
On my claims to human rights.

For, instead of arms,
I can use the Net to reach.
But, if someone harms
My connection, what's the breach?

And, I don't need legs
If I want to move around
Cyberspace, which begs
Questions about where I'm found.

My essential quest
Is for my identity
So I'll never rest
Till I know what's part of me.
