Never Let Me Go
  Kazuo Ishiguro
– a novel I am reading for a book club meeting I am attending on the last week of this month. Being ‘pop sci-fi thriller’ it’s not what I normally read but exploring new nooks of genre is nifty. 

Characters of this novel (2005) are children raised in a boarding school in East Sussex, England as clones intended to provide organs for non-clones. A film adaptation of the same title was released in 2010.

Never Let Me Go
Hazel, Delineating Des
 
Baby, never let me go
Kathy sings as she hugs her pillow
Madame watches her and cries
Kathy later asks her why
And Madame replies:
because I see this little girl
A new world she is facing
An efficient but cruel world
But it is emerging
Never let me go
To the old world
The little girl is asking.
