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.

Let me go in peace

Grant me the wish
To go in peace
To go in one piece
Not fragmented by
The hatred of
The mercenaries
Neither do I wish
To grow old such
That all pains are mine
And the doctors rich
Let me be in peace
If these old organs
No benefit to the living
Through me in the ocean
In death may
I be useful
If not to humans
Atleast to someone
Who will enjoy my taste
