Mary Had a Little Lamb...
>>Mary had a little lamb, its fleece was slightly grey,
>>It didn't have a father, just some borrowed DNA.
>>It sort of had a mother, though the ovum was on loan,
>>It was not so much a lambkin, as a little lamby clone.
>>And soon it had a fellow clone, and soon it had some more,
>>They followed her to school one day, all cramming through the door.
>>It made the children laugh and sing, the teachers found it droll,
>>There were too many lamby clones, for Mary to control.
>>No other could control the sheep, since their programs didn't vary,
>>So the scientists resolved it all, by simply cloning Mary.
>>But now they feel quite sheepish, those scientists unwary,
>>One problem solved, but what to do, with Mary, Mary, Mary...
