Nature or Nurture


Poesy plus Polemics

The well behaved child
Is a parent’s fond dream
But the ones who run wild
Incite tempers to steam

The argument goes
Is it nature or nurture?
Confounding psych pros
And the bioresearcher

I’m merely a layman
Who makes humble claim
If the kid is a daemon
The parents share blame

But the question is still
Not answered for sure
Genes don’t shape free will
When they give geniture

No matter what tramples
Through genomes recessed
Inspiring examples
Serve character best
