Claimed, Baby, Claimed

Just another day in science made of experts,
children playing with dragons and paint
and parthenogenesis. From maple eggs, cherry embryos.

But the tactics of toys in modern politics:
Every time we think, a flag.
No one is throwing hopes around.

Playgrounds recalled because we leave flags there,
recalled without realising it,
because they were covered with popular plastic.

--Glenn R. Frantz

Fraud scientist made unwitting discovery, say researchers
Old-school toys hold new appeal for parents
Russia guided by international law in its polar shelf probe
