  A Rosy Future

Right under our noses,
criss-crossing DNA
to engineer genetically altered
designer tomatoes
on to supermarket shelves.

Perfected ones.
Press them, their rosy epidermis bounce
right back - no time lapse,
no orange-skin cellulite for these babies.
And like all good Supermodels, alike as two peas.

Held respomsible?
Boffins. You see them
sometimes, when they venture
out, needing haircuts
and wearing fawn.
