Plus this poem:


                                               Mary had a little lamb

                                        its fleece was slightly gray.

                                        It didn't have a father

                                        just some borrowed DNA.

                                        It sort of had a mother

                                        though the ovum was on loan,

                                        It was not so much a lambkin

                                        As a little lamby clone.

                                       And soon it had a fellow clone

                                       and soon it had some more,

                                       They followed her to school one day

                                       all cramming through the door.

                                       It made the children laugh and play

                                       the teachers found it droll,

                                       There were too many lamby clones

                                       For Mary to control.

                                       No other could control the sheep

                                       Since their programs didn't vary,

                                       So the scientists resolved it all

                                       By simply cloning Mary.

                                       But now they feel quite sheepish

                                       Those scientists unwary,

                                       One problem solved, but what to do

                                       With Mary, Mary, Mary……..
