Cells aplenty, and blood coursing through my veins,
Derivatives of familial DNA strains.
Genetics play an important part, you see,
In the shaping of little old me.
The reading of books and the knowledge within,
Reflects in my speech, my thoughts and mind's ken.
The places I've lived, people I've known,
Have all influenced me as I have grown.
So, what makes me tick you ask of me?
A little bit of this and that, a real mystery.
