Love Has Never Been About the Genes
|Love has never been about the genes,|
But about beauty, and unforgiving grace.
The wolf that suckled Romulus and Remus
Had nothing in her heart but wrenching joy.
Oh, yes, of course, love also is a means,
And so it is with mothers who love children
For Rome, the wolf will always be its kindred,
