In memory of Mathew Herman Vain killed 1970

23 may 2013 8:36 am

Mathew Herman Vain
A child who had no name

Was killed before he was born
His cell from his kidneys was torn

Cloned and named HEK293
Those cells they use to satisfy you and me

They use it in processes to make vaccines
And process for artificial flavors obscene

He had no name as from his mother he was torn
And until now has not been officially mourned

I gave him his name so all will remember
This was a real child that science dismembered

So people can be vain
And glutony can rein
