Ode to Captain Kirk

Oh Captain Kirk
Were you destroyed
The moment you set foot
In a transporter?
Stamping your numbers
On a different set of atoms
On the planet below
Is no guarantee
You’ll complete your mission
If the original
Is not destroyed
And the copy
Goes on its way
Which one is the Self?
The cells of my body
Regenerate every day
So is I today
Different from the I of yesterday?
Can we be who we are
Without who we were?
If we hope to conquer
Both Time and Space
We better figure this shit out
