This made me think of an article I read in the paper about a man who had one pretty child out of three. Well, I won't go into it, but there is something to be said for the oldfashioned way of doing things and It's alot more fun!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your marks... I realize this doesn't quite rhyme in some cases... but did anyone catch the acrostic? There are "two" to be found... sort of keeping with the clone theme.

Excellent, Andrew, and yes I caught the acrostic, but only the first one, found the other only after your mention of it. Clever you are! To me, one acrostic in a piece is hard work. How do you guys do this? Are you all like geniuses or something?

Lady Hoot: I bow to you in thanks. Watcher: Thanks for looking in Caroline: Although I believe great benefits will come of this tech... I also believe it will lead to our next great plague Lady D: Last I checked my IQ was still hangin' in the averages... I'll admit, it was alot of work Munda: My thanks to you as well. Glad to have shared
Listening to every heart

I saw the first acrostic. It blew my mind when the other was pointed out to me. One Grandson was a miracle baby. But the type blessed by God. And we count him as one of our greatest blessings. Must agree with your point of view here.
Andrew, great work here....the form was quite clever. The poem's content itself hits a sore spot with me. Humans have no right to play God....but we do it anyway. You have got a song in my head describing this human flaw now....thanks, I'll be insane within the hour.
