Notes: This was based on a few things, that inspired this poem, one was a fertility doctor who was cloning himself, and another was a side note found on a very ancient manuscript, where was typed the following notation. (this is a rough translation)

"Shadowed chameleon

The nameless one whose mask came undone"

Silence is Golden In a laboratory in a far away place called Lahore Was a mad scientist, who experimented Offshore He fiddled and fuddles deep inside his lab Making clones of his glorious self Thinking they mighty fine lads He cloned twenty or thirty or a hundred and more All chattering and gabbing, their master they adore Oh yes, he’s the mad scientist from Lahore He has many accolades for he had many votes He cloned so many, democracy was a joke But the governor caught on And saw through the clouds Something was evil under the shroud Banished he was to the prison of deception Hopefully he will clone no more fake conceptions

There was a movie about cloning with Michael Keaton called Muliplicity, it was silly, but makes one realize that you can clone the body, but each mind will be different. Cool poem Arthur! : )

Goes to show that diversity is more important than cloning! Thumbs up for real democracy! // paul

Interesting read, Arthur, a great sci-fi piece, no female clones, all lads?? Mad scientist has to havve some level of limitation. A great read: My favorite line: "Banished he was to the prison of deception" - I can read a lot into that one line alone.

The first stanza is rather like a limerick in style and made me smile but reading further into the poem its quite scary to think that this could happen. I hope they never cloned me one poop poet is enough lol:-) hugs Jan xx

That fiddler from Lahore was such a bore. Compliments to the governor for having an insurrection, and compliments to you, Authur, for authoring this confection.
