Could this be perfect symmetry
A mirror or an image trap
Research rat I'll accept not so
By body kleptomaniac
One should be bred true and clean
Not by what scientists can do
Cease playing God, its not your job
Our future begs something purer
Proper pa and nurturing ma
Young fresh stock not by dish and doc

It's said that God is jealous -- the ones you speak of here may be toeing a dangerous line. Thought-provoking.

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.

Good question~~ Could a research by one not cease our proper young? I believe cloning could be a dangerous game to play. Well done Andrew!

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

Well done Scott....and words very wise...I'm not sure God meant for us to be doing what we're doing in the labs right now.....

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.

Dr. Moose: I don't think I'd want to do that... God knows what kind of medicine I'd be prescribed if I were to hit you with a stick.

Ohme: Glad I could give you a surprise. My view on things... if you're ment to have kids , you'll have kids... if not... its evelution in progress. Nobody said life was fair, though I wish it were.

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.

Good poem Andrew, or Andrew's clone, whoever posted this. Indeed, someone out there's breeding contempt.

Ah excuss me! I didn't write this... so who ever is using my name... thanks, but stop it. It's my name and you can't have it. (Damn that evil twin!)

SD: Glad to see your mark and you're welcome for the song.

Michael: Thanks for coming by... I've much admired your work.

Lady Suthern: Thank you as well... and thanks for not holding a gruge on that shooting incident.
