An Ode To Dna
a poem by Gita Ashok


Even though you’re minuscule,
we call you a macromolecule.
The brainchild of Watson and Crick,
you make our biological clocks tick.

Being a double helix, you deserve a lot of attention
and you hold plenty of genetic information;
though at times you carry misinformation
which is when we say you have undergone mutation.

With a sugar-phosphate backbone on the outside
and many pairs of nitrogenous bases inside
where A bonds with T and C bonds with G,
you are truly packed with a lot of energy.

You hold the key to the destiny
of every little cell inside me.
You make us mortals grow, you let us repair
and you enable propagation of species everywhere.

You are often misused by genetic engineers;
yet you offer a new lease of life to many others.
You hold the blueprint for all protein,
You’re truly Mr. Monk’s hero in a crime scene.

Monk. That is the stuff. Great shots. Have had a hard time watching Monk though, since having lost someone to OCD. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I know he is just for laughs. But truth is that it can kill you. And once you see something like that happen you are never the same. Peace friend. Hope you are well.
