Genetics

#1 Post by meenas17 » 23 Sep 2019, 18:13

A wholesome baby,
plump and bald,
with big eyes,
without a chin
born as a fourth child,

lies pretty
smiling all the way,
a contented child,
as seen from the day
of birth, stays happy
the rest of the years.

Two more siblings, boys,
come after her
in an interval
of few years.
add to the bustle.

The family,quite big
with six in the brood,
lives in a huge house
manned and guarded
marked by opulence.

Genetics runs vibrant
while the fourth one
has knee and leg issues
a prognosis found
in her late father.

She inherits the ailment
suffers as he did. Lives
cursing her legs
as her father did,
does with
perfect equation,

Yes, an often occurrence with genetics. Maybe a blessing.
