Rhymes & Reasons
Babies in the Wings (Clipped)
by Greg Asimakoupoulos
Posted: March 15, 2009
Grieving a pro-life stance…
What stemmed the tide has been reversed.
Those embryos-on-ice are cursed.
Our president has sealed the doom
of babies in the wings.
This is a moral slippery slope.
A slipknot in the cosmic rope.
Just like a snowball's plight in Hell,
those frozen zygotes die.
Because their wings will soon be clipped,
they'll never fly. God's sacred gift
has been reduced to Lincoln logs
with which researchers play.
The sanctity of DNA
may seem to some a sort of gray.
But when it comes to human life,
the truth IS black and white.
I grieve for babies in the wings
who'll never have the chance to sing...
"Little ones to Him belong.
The Bible tells me so."
