When we engage in conversation
All eyes are looking at you and me.
We must look out for our
Reputations, and buy ourselves
The only sure method for our protection
Is a one-time pad I can give to you
and holds up to anyone's inspection.
I feel your waves coming through!
You are the one I believe, my child.
You're my choice, as none will ever know
Who has the key and who is my most
Secretive of friends,
Receiving in messages of light.
We'll have to agree on bases
When you transmit to me your key.
If no one should ever see our faces
Quantum is the way to be.
If anyone tries to interfere,
Our waves will bounce and then we'll know
That anything you say I didn't hear
Was observed, and as our particles go:
entanglement, disentanglement ...)
Your signal weakens on the wire-
Has someone tried to splice us apart?
It seems that some enemies of ours conspire
To thwart our scheme, and we must restart.
