Can ya tell the difference?
Tweenst an original or clone?
They have the same appearance,
Down to their every bone.

Mary's lamb is now a mom,
Her family's elated.
Not by test tube breeding,
But with a ram she mated.

Now mating's not essential,
For creatures on the brink,
Of becoming endangered species,
Or ever ending up extinct.

If a species has expired,
We can take some "DNA"
That's all that is required,
To bring them back someday.

The idea is quite amazing,
It's the perfect plan,
We could clone a million pigs,
With just one can of SPAM

We could fill the whole world over,
Why we could clone a bunch;
With the crumbs we have leftover,
From what we ate at lunch!

Some people may suggest
that you should be a clone
don't listen to them Toerag
leave well enough alone!

LOL! This was wonderful. And underneath the fun is a very good lesson. Leave the 'duplication' to God.

There's already cloning going on here because you are two much and I'm beside myself with laughter!

The sheep all look the same
DNA, they say,'s to blame
Well, you can't tell who's the grandpa and the grandma.
Down the lane I walk
With my sweet Mary,
Says her job is gettin' scary
As we look out at
The big, mean mass of clones.

(apologies to Tom Jones)

Isn't this rich?
Aren't we a pair?
Where before one poet stood
Now two are there.

Send in the clones.

Just when I'd stopped
Feelin' ok
Along came a doctor
With my DNA.
Filling a test tube with strands
Of my hair.
Now you can see.
I'm quite a pair.

Don't you love twins?
On with the show.
When one gets tired, you can tell
The other to go

And send in the clones
Quick! Send in the clones
We may need three here.

(Man, I could do a whole album on this topic!)
