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!!
