About the Poem
Cloning the human being? Why must man play God? Is this the end?
|by Edward Racey
Similar but not the same
experience defines distinction.
Man must not seek to duplicate
just one step closer to extinction.
Why bite the hand that feeds you?
Why smack the hands of creation?
Has time taught us nothing of life?
We MUST fight the duplication.
It is hard enough today
to find a definite identity.
It would be impossible to find the truth
if there were two or more of me.
You have constructed the ladder
but now you have climbed too high.
The strands of DNA beneath you shatter
and now the pieces fall from the sky.
Clones - Is this really me?
