Amorphous Alleles?

-Anu Acharya , 19th November 2012


There was once a gene,

With oh! so many alleles

If you looked at one,

You hoped to run,

Unlike the other one,

Who seemed to have fun?


It was just another day,

I met them both on the way,

They came to a locus,

And fought till they went out of focus,

Where the dominant one won,

In the heterozygous race that had begun,

Yet the recessive one smiled,

Its phenotype was being filed,

For the future to come.


The future it came,

Where the wild one was tame,

And the mutant was the one,

That changed the game.
