I’m Only Half Way To The Moon
Why does a tree or a plant
Have more DNA than me
Am, I any less evolved?
Than a plant or a tree!
So we’re all coded.
By 4 letters A, C, T and G
But, where am ‘I' on…
The amino acid chain, me!
What part of the codon wheel?
Do I belong, too…?
So proteins are building blocks.
Bricks in the wall, a menu!
So, on their ladder I’ve got-
6,000,000,000 'rungs' of DNA
That if stretched like snot
Would, reach half way to the moon.
But still 'I' isn’t as evolved
As a plant or a tree
We humans all 99% alike
So laugh your related to me.
