We’re closer to a radish than a Romulan,
An unrelated creature of a foreign sun.
How can a Klingon/human couple mate?
She’s closer to the gak that squirms upon her plate.
How could each evolve from different gobs of goo
To the sameness of a Federation crew?
What makes a moose a moose and not a kangaroo?
Remoteness for a hundred million years or two.
And breeding for a mere few hundred years
Can yield a dog with floppy or with pointed ears.
No billion-year-old seeding program grew
The sameness of a Federation crew.
Did convergent evolution shape them all by chance,
To fit in Star Fleet’s regulation shoes and pants?
What narcissism makes five-fingered hands
Prerequisites for venturing from native lands?
There’s more richness in a single planet’s zoo
Than the sameness in a Federation crew.
