by David R. Cravens
a query for you in the third degree
who sired these urchins? what sort of wit?
oh sage of the GPC and TAZ-tee
and thither comes thy duty to emit
at the cost (am I saying this out loud?)
of a natural-born aristocracy
your double-helix of which you’re so proud
in fabric six billion ancillary?
and managing the register, you too…
until Omni, The Skeptic, Discover
and yes, The Philosophical Review
take the place of The Star, all will suffer
a program of eugenics is the route
to cull this detrimental bell-curve gout
