Don’t Call Me Mad: Sin in Gene

My ancestor’s gene is bad,
O what a sin
Committed, I inherited,
Running after them,
With the sense of music and ear,
Same evil I do.

Doctrines expect good in me,
O what a task
Failed, not my making; why trait?
Obeying chromosome,
Like computer to instructions,
Same evil they did.

Give everyman a different trait,
O hear me lord
Surely, like thumb-print
I swear,
If I sin,
A different evil I do.
