Too Wrong

They wanted something different
a pet that could talk to them
so into the lab the scientist went,
just what the hell did he invent?

They say 2 wrongs don’t make a right
combine them right and you just might
but when the babies came that night
they were not a beauteous sight.

The idea was dogs and humans cloned
the babies were ugly, clean to the bone
when one spoke up in a baritone,
“Which one of you will take me home?”

I recycled “Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clean to the bone.” Dorthy Parker and “Two wrongs don’t make a right.”

  1. I love this piece. Not just the dark hilarity of it, but also what lies deeper. Scientists, reformers, politicians… are always willing and excited about changing things, creating new stuff (and dog-people *cough*), but when it comes to taking responsibility for the results, no one seems to be raising their hands.

    I, too, wonder who’ll take the poor pup home.
