Sea este el verso

They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another's throats.

Man hands on misery to man,
It deepens like a coastal shelf
Get out as early as you can,
And don't have any kids yourself.
Philip Larkin
Visto en They fuck you up. How to survive family life.
y también envarios libros más que tratan de explicar que los genes
no son nada en comparación a las relaciones familiares y sociales.
