A few sentences will suffice.

Optional Bonus 2-points (Not included as part of your page length).
I am very strict about giving out extra credit points. In order to get these 2 points, you will need to perfectly address the following:
Write a Haiku showing that you understand Meiosis, its purpose, function, and how it works. The execution of the Haiku must be flawless, and your understanding of Meiosis needs to be correct.

This Haiku needs to follow the instructions of a Haiku perfectly AND be scientifically meaningful.
Funny and scientifically accurate Haikus will get these points easily.
