Chromosomes and DNA…
Carry information to this day
From ancestors in the past
The amazing library is vast

Characteristics that describe
Keep smiles and frowns alive
Traits a person inadvertently inherits
Can be detrimental or have merits

Keen eyes have improved perception
Observing an egg after conception
Instinctively the assembly line rolls
Life begins with history at the controls

This is interesting. If I were to write a poem about 2004 (from an American perspective) , I'd have to include the beheadings in Iraq, the missing WMD justification for the war, the Mel Gibson movie, the Michael Moore movie, the Boston Red Sox, and of course, the tsunami. Am I forgetting anything?
