If I Could Clone Somebody

If I could clone somebody

That someone would be you.

Right before you left me

And went with someone new.

 

I wouldn't keep you in the basement

I wouldn't tie you to the wall

I swear I wouldn't chain you

To the clothes rack in the hall.

 

I promise it will be different

From what we had before

You would not need to shoot me

Or present a case in law

 

I only need some DNA

a scrape of skin, some hair?

Oh please don't look at me like that

It really is so unfair.

 

I have my vat all ready to go

For growing the perfect clone

So let me have some DNA

Don't leave me here alone.

The End
