The Code of Life


By Tanzelle

A, C, G, T
what will the next one in the sequence be?
A double helix twisted round
How many base pairs can you count?
Genetic information must be read right
else the organism may succumb to blight
Cellular mechanisms and protein tricks
ensures that all the bases sticks
Should something go awry
it won’t always make you cry
Genetic adaptation sometimes does find its origin
from rogue DNA that has bored in
Complicated as an organism may be
the code of life simply
starts with A, C, G, T

Tanzelle writes “for creative expression.”
