Genetic Dreams Uno

Is Life an endless stream of DNA?
A smorgasbord that shades continually
From every kind of animal and plant
To make a handy genomes library?

To create a super-bug or super-plant
Add some more genes! What once was not extant
We’ll bring to life! Dragons or unicorns
Perhaps will our ecology supplant.

New plants created to grow GM food.
Or what about, in some more Gothic mood
New human venus-flytraps? Genetics
Can create good or bad: as people would.
