Science Unleashed

Tigons  and Ligers
Embryos in petri dish
Test tube babies
Life cloned
Dolly the sheep 
Fear the world
With thousands of
Hitlers, Stalins
Maos or Trumps
Science progresses
By leaps and bounds
Human Organs grown in animals
Or animal organs in humans
Are we creating
New species 
Humals or Animans
Organ harvesting
To reward the rich
For their extravagant excesses
Or a cure for all 
Billions of poor will
Silently suffer
Science unleashed
Research for benefitting masses 
Or seeking the holy grail of
Eternal youth and
Elixir of life for the rich

This poem is the result of thought process of hearing a discussion on National Public Radio on my way to office yesterday. I do not know the title of the topic of discussion as I heard it somewhere in the middle and did not hear the ending as I reached office before discussion was over.  The topic related to growing human organs in animals and harvesting those organs for treating incurable diseases requiring organ transplant.  As far as I can understand, it involved stem cell research and DNA and is supported by NIH.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.
