Ode to Mitosis

Mitosis is a process For One cell to become Two There are Four distinct phases Happening within You

First comes Prophase
The Chromatin strands condense
They now become visible
Through a microscope lens

Next comes Metaphase
The important Stage Two

Chromosomes attach to Spindle Fiber
Using Molecular Glue

Then comes Anaphase
It's really quite sad
Sister Chromatids separate
To opposite poles- too bad :(

Finally, it's Telophase
Nuclear membranes reform
Spindle fibers disperse
And Two new cells are born.
