 ramblings and things

Genetic Engineering

A headline in the red tops,
Tabloid front pages as well,
A story the media vied
To be the first to tell.
A Revolution in medicine,
Really something very big,
The first time a human
Received the heart of a pig.

A little genetic engineering
Was all they would need
And so with care they bred
A pig of a suitable breed.
They took time and effort
So that they could prepare
For a successful procedure
And after surgery care.

He got a new life
His dreams came true
Once again he was able
To do things he used to do.
Only one  slight problem,
In trees he would start to snuffle,
And, going down on all fours
He'd start to hunt for truffle.
