My DNA Over Ten Generations or a Thousand Years

Here’s two percent of me –
Asian Indian. Seriously? Really?
Take me for free.
Here’s thirty-two percent of me –
British. That’s why there’s Indian in me.
Take me for free.
Here’s eighteen percent of me –
Western European — so much for fifty-percent Dutch in me.
Take me for free.
Here’s forty-two percent of me –
Scandinavian – The Vikings put out to sea.
Take me for free.
Here’s four percent of me –
Fin. The Vikings traveled to Finland, I see.
Take me for free.
Here’s two percent of me –
Northwest Russian. The Vikings traveled to Russia, too, I see,
or did the Russians invade via the Baltic Sea?
Putin says, “Only two percent!
You can have him for a small fee.”
All in all, I’m just happy to be me —
originally out of Africa, part of
the human family.
