They do not give a flying carpet
about the doctrines and laws they have heard
and unlearned from sages and prophets;
the future, they believe, is in a test-tube,
carrying Man's seeds for survival.
The society has become so technologically
advanced, that mothers want their babies
to grow up with a look they prefer;
they also want disease-free babies.
Scientists work around the clock like ants
in white coats,
as they come up with the society's needs,
after months of sleep deprivation
and nature upgrading.
Man believes he has created a future of his choice,
cloning humans who don't kill, don't steal,
don't scam, don't get sick......
Man has created a new human race of the Golden Age,
whose future generations will forget they were clones of purity
and perfection, returning back to state of Old Humanity.....

You're right, it would be the path back to the cave, a lobotomy of the heart and soul of man. Thanks for this incredible poem that so cleverly sounds the alarm :) Amitiés
