Glow In The Flow

There’s a glow in the flow in the dark
these days of a super unnatural kind.
While scientific minds play with gene combinations
in a “what if” whimsical roulette game
with a rush to perfect through bio diverse experiment
a man-made zoo of unusual hue of creatures with features
evolution had yet to decide.
Where recognition and fame and funding’s to blame,
more research their ultimate prize.
Some years and new inroads and milestones from now
down this twisted random chancy path
science will derive, understand, realize
by marrying hindsight with careful observation
of these new life forms’ eventual shades
in a splendid explosion of glorious dimension
and ruminate it was never their intention
for the isolated mutation through eventual permutation
to result in effects never originally sought
yet ultimately wrought
for better or worse
