Perhaps some GM bug will sterilise
Our planet. All too late we’ll realise
Genetics was a perilous open-door
Science obtained: to use in ways unwise.

Geneticists tell us they’ll splice and use
Whatever genes are best for them to choose
To mold new life-forms and create for man
New living horrors. Can we them refuse?

Are humans God to play with splicing genes
To mix up species, making in-betweens:
Half-animal, half-plant, and half nightmare?
Do none reflect on what this really means?
