The Code of Life – Short Poem

The Code Of Life, artverse,, drabble, prose, literature, writing, inspirational, message, tanzelle oberholster, genetics, molecular biology, genes, base parirs

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.
