Blessings for an Engineering Race

By Annie Zaidi

May you not give birth to monsters.
May your children not have the haunches
of a pig.
May your pigs not have horns
from highland cows.
May your salmon be wild
and your prawns unfarmed.
May your goats be purebred
and your cotton, white gold.
May you bloom and grow
bloom and grow
and may you know
when to stop
