homo (sapient?)

New research in lab and field sustains

Development of varied, superior strains

Of animals, flowers, fruit and grains.

Mules adapted to mountain-terrain,

Rice to salty coastal plain,

Cotton resistant to coffee stains,

Bacteria to digest organic remains

But no geneticist ever explains

Why he fights shy of, resolutely refrains

From aggressive development of human brains!

Our schools have become corrupt and vain,

We mass-produce drone workers who again

Repeat weary tasks for which they are trained

And every new insight is  disdained-

If it cannot make an immediate cash gain:

It is so clear that we shall always remain

Apes who use ten percent of their brain!!
