The Precautionary Principle; “Do No Harm First”

Michelle Salvail

How will some give away a secret second genetic code?
From toxins hidden in our bread our daily
I am afraid to eat
Your wrinkly prehensile toes I could tolerate them in my grandchildren
I would revel in the blonde strawberry curls
But not turned off epigenetic
Lack of mental activity
Loss of music through your male bloodline
Loss of poetry through your maternal line
Body’s building blocks protein hormones abominations chemical warfare
Sperm fertilizes eggs don’t let industry wipe them clean
From us to off spring in a chemical switching system
1,800 new chemical are annually registered to counter attack our destiny
There is a revolution in genetic responsibility fertilizes my eggs
Returns the blood moon to her rightful place in the Farmer’s Almanac
