Fetal Flow

In amniocentesis answers lie
to questions we dare not ask
Which diseases do I have
or which should I be wary of.
This aqua vitae is our unborn shield
till parturition rents asunder
as screaming and sweating
our way into this world we barge.
Some born eventually for motherhood
others for impregnation
while others still, choose
no replication, content
with academia instead of procreation.
To teach, to learn,
to live then find out
that one day you know
you should not have
what you already have
but alas it's too late to stop it from happening all over again.
