The Shallow End of the Gene Pool

He just can’ t get past

the shallow end of the gene pool –

his thoughts are skipping stones,

bouncing off a surface as smooth as glass.

Any conclusions which need to be drawn

are best left to the artists;

he is too occupied

in swallowing his own press

to go off the deep end.
