It fucks us up, our DNA.
That is the sad but honest truth.
It makes our hair turn thin and grey
And sends our lipids through the roof.
It makes maths lessons wearisome,
And gives us dreadful allergies
It tortures little children
With its disorders and disease.
But it helped Beethoven to write,
And Isaac Newton to explore,
And it will never end the fight
To do, and be, a little more.
