X And Y - Poem by Daegal
You have no right to call me insane, you
Can watch what I do, you can have your own
Opinions, but you have no right to judge
Me. I have stood here long enough to know
That mankind’s downfall is slowly rearing
It’s shaggy, two-pronged head and laughing with
A fearsome energy. People think to
Play God, alienists and analysts
Diagnosing what they don’t understand,
Dismissing it as eccentricity
In it’s simplest shape. People think to play
God, disordering genetic structure
In pursuit of that one perfect model.
People think to play God, but they don’t know
The rules. You may call me insane, yet I
Do not judge you on your innocence as
You have on mine. People shouldn’t think to play God.
