Genetically Modified

Poem by Adryan Barnathan

Man with a crab claw
baby with a snout
no more butterflies
G.M.engineered them out
testing, altering, sterilizing seeds
wipe out those pest infested fields
increase farmers annual yields
while money gets greener
gods creatures disappear
criss cross pollination
'humm, let's see'
feed it to the 3rd world's
hungry suffering-
human guinea pigs
sow and care
for seeds that won't
bare harvest next year
and generations later
we may see
our species changing
while we're still eating
delicious french fries
spliced with pig gene
now taste this
it will open your eyes
are we still human
or are we evolving
a new species
whose future will witness
physical changes
that start to resemble
a gathering at a
star trek convention
money gets greener
but in the process
we loose the balance
between man and nature
will there come a day
when we'll tell our
grand kids
'When I was young
I could save seeds-
put them in the ground
and they'd grow for me'?

#6 nice candid!
#7 love the perspective of this one, capturing the fish, water flow, rocks lining the river banks, the buildings along the shore & the lovely sky....

Excellent reminder/warning verse on the dangers & folly of trying to "improve" on Nature's already perfect produce....appropriate "spooky" music to enhance sobering verse......

I asked the sellers if these were organic vegetables and they replied they were genetically modified. There was a TV crew making a documentary about these vegetables while we were there. Thanks for the cool comment dear friend
