By Larry Silverstein
See that baby in the corner?
Her life might not be so good!
I can tell she’ll be a problem…
That much, ma’am, is understood!
She’s not really quite a “person”;
Yes, we’re sure she’s unaware.
Her life may not be worth living…
Let’s “abort” and show we care.
She’s just not what we’d call “human”...
She’s not really at that stage.
“Cute” enough, but just not “with it”...
Unaware and disengaged.
She has no real moral standing…
Not just yet, and that’s the glitch!
She’s no diff’rent from a tomcat,
Or some tiny mongrel !@#$%.
We’ll decide for you what’s “human”...
When a “what” becomes a “who”!
On these shifting sands of reason,
Moral Law we may undo.
These things change, ma’am. Please don’t worry!
We know best about these things;
We’ve been schooled in Bio-Ethics,
Singing songs that Singer sings!
That’s the song of Peter Singer…
(Margaret Sanger sang it, too).
If that melody’s familiar,
Maybe you should ask the Jew.
That’s the downbeat of Eugenics,
Euthanasia’s Rhythm Band.
Dr. Jacob’s still drumming
Out there on that shifting sand.
