Sonnet- Genes Matter But

No longer secret’s the genome of man!
The gene make-up of all beasts will be known;
Man’s actions and misdeeds, alter none can,
Except man himself, using his mind own.

How can the new knowledge of genes prevent
The growing crimes against men in this world?
For his grave sins unless man can repent,
He will suffer in hell or when he’s old.

The society’s problems, man must resolve,
Thro’ self-control and love of his neighbour;
By brotherhood of nations, man can solve,
Most of the problems and make earth better.
Knowing one’s genes is not the solution;
Know thine own mind by self-realization.
