little ones are less self-aware -
That is our rationale for experimenting
On them. They have less to regret and
Less to lose,
fearing nothing but pain.
And the pain and anguish to Mommy and Daddy?
They are only taken from criminals
found with a propensity for crime.
Public Nuisances, or Public Pee-ers,
pull flowers from their neighbour's gardens,
who scream, and run amok like weeds.
Parents who wish to earmark their children
merely need to ignore
them, and allow them to annoy
preferably an acquisitions officer.
So far we have yielded unparalleled results,
Our 100 year-old
citizens now look and feel
No more than
40, and we have successfully
free radical eradicants into the bodies
Of our 150
There is no longer any need for large quantities
to sustain population rate. Citizens are
to have one child to keep if they pass
Philosophy Programme with no less
Than A+ for
all 20 modules. Their genes must
Also be given
a stamp of approval from the
Genetics and Population Control.
When we are finally fit
the Moon and Mars,
may be lifted.
But for now
and the good of all
exist, this is the mandate.
Long live humanity.
