Enhance Me

April 13, 2011
Take apart my DNA,
and put it back together,
however you want,
change me,
rearrange me,
make me superior,
enhance me,
make me beautiful,
and intelligent too,
get rid of those ugly hereditary genes,
make me one of a kind,
with a doctored up mind.

Wow, this kind of reminds me of he book "Brave New World" and what I've heard of of the Uglies series (i havent read it). It just shows that people really value that perfection that isnt possible in out original DNA. Great job!

Thanks! A lot of people that have read it said that it reminded them of "The Uglies". But, I haven't read them. I was kind of thinking of "Maximum Ride" when I wrote it.

This is pretty cool. My only suggestion is consider a different way of saying "doctored-up mind." The doctor/medical connotation is valuable here as it fits the theme, but I personally felt a sense of dissapointment at the last line. I was expecting something with bit more edge. You could even add a line between "make me one of a kind" and "with a doctored up mind" while retaining the important rhyme. I suggest this because you might be able to set up that final line for an even heavier hit.

Nice job! This poem is funny and striking at the same time. Keep writing. I want to read more of your work. If you could help me out and post some comments on my poem "Destinies Entwined" that would be great! I could really use the feedback. I'm pretty new at writing and this site. ANY tips would be wonderful!
