Beast, My Design
by M.W. McDermott

I have a calf in the bath tub.
It has been near death twice.
 It has recovered again,
But stays in the tub waiting for warmer weather. 

Its not a Highland calf,
They are a  much hardier lot.
Mans' folly to play with Natures perfection.  

99% of all mutations are terminal,
As we modify genetic sequences,
Its likely most will end in nonproductive outcomes,
Endangering us all,
Who are Natures design.
