Cloning in the Dark

Genetic engineering
Tampering with nature
High tech society
Not enough to go around
Regime rises to the top
Proletarians not needed
Side tracked,
Stream lined corporations
Lean and mean
Sophisticated communications
We’re not all going to make it!
The wealthy are insulated
By privilege and power
Tax dollars spent on research
Only benefits the educated
Working classes suffer and die
A lack of dignity and respect
A new chapter in an oppressive society
Clones of the elite
Will always be under feet
Not so of the proletarians
Social programs designed
For the deserving vs. undeserving
They operate our country
Like a corporation
Citizens are let go if they can’t produce
Billions spent searching for planets
While busy destroying the one we have
Concentrate on life in inner space
Stand up and be counted
Brothers and sisters, stop cloning around!
Constitutions are for people not corporations
Don’t play their game, they never dealt us in!!
