D.N.A

 

me as a baby

My hair is from Scotland

And the twinkle in my eye

My pasty white skin

Maybe the Island of Skye

 

My attitude’s my own

Or my mothers I think

But dad had tenacity

And the courage not to blink

 

My grandmother is here

Add my grandfather too

Back generations I’m told

And yet some of its new

 

I believe in myself

The person I am

We’re all here together

In sort of a jam

 

Six generations removed

They say it began

And all through the ages

I’m just one of the clan

 

I give thanks to an uncle

For freckles on my nose

And then there’s that cousin

He gave me his toes

 

The DNA chapter

Is still being written

But scientist now

Are so very smitten

 

Your looks and your manners

Began in your past

If good you will keep them

If not they won’t last

 

So look to the future

Your descendants to come

Think of the habits

You can give them for fun
