MAN’S HAND IN DESTRUCTION
The coming of horror is at our feet.
Mankind shall go out in the final met.
Death will ride dangerously on a leaf,
-And death will befall us upon a reef.
What man has cleverly created,
-Shows us as humans have only hated.
Our words are spoken in anger to hurt;
-And are often buried deep in the dirt.
Time’s been allowed to slip into the past.
Lives have been tossed far too frequent and fast.
All for the sake of man’s lost true knowledge,
-That teeters back and forth over a ledge:
We are all too proud in our lives to see,
The death and destruction we cannot flee,
We have not learned from our distant past,
It’s our very lives we alone have cast.
