Nine of Ten

I like to read the daily news,
And lately am engrossed
In yarns that show the reason why
I'm dumber than a post.

The Presidential science czar
Has helped me lately see:
The order of my family birth
Has been the curse of me.

Apparently the DNA
From which my body grew,
Was insufficient in the strands
That point to high IQ.

The more sophisticated strands
Were long disbursed by when
I cried and took a breath of air,
As sibling nine of ten.

But thank the Lord I wasn’t last,
For ten is worse than nine:
My brother makes a post look smart,
And makes me look just fine.
