Our heads have grown so big that we
want to one-up nature by climbing
into the creator/evolution’s seat
ourselves. Half human/half robot?
Adding letters to our DNA?
Our scarlet petticoat is showing,
discounting and gambling our precious
humanity and creativity, our struggle
to actualize our love, and nurture that
with which we were uniquely born.
Oh power-hungry one in the lab, it
is our lives and our grandchildren’s
that you want to gamble with! Nurture
nature! Surely there are sufficient
challenges in our own back yard. Crossed
fingers may not work for you, taking all
that we hold dear with you.
