DNA is only so diverse...

DNA is only so diverse...
When your race
is as old
as the universe,
then there are bound
to be some problems
hidden in your gene pool.

Regardless of which Great Old One you serve:
be it Father Dagon, Mother Hydra, Yog-sothoth,
or even mighty Cthulhu,
there are still limitations
when yer mom and dad do that
"do that they do” (and make you).
Variation is an imperative.

when you’re one of countless brethren
isolated in benthic oceanic realms,
hidden from sight of moral men
by energies both arcane and horrible,
then variation in one’s makeup is about as rare
as hen’s teeth.

So every once in a while,
one of us is born with
less than savory characteristics.
Usually, this is no issue - after all
we know none of us are winning
any beauty pageants. Nevertheless it is pretty tough,
being an inbred Deep One.
