Like savage animals they were: impure.
Hairy hunters that strived to survive.
Minds darkened by the thought to endure,
until one day a flame sparked it alive -
Like scared children some were: immature.
Fear faltered thinking – the world was flat;
sailors scared stiff of some sea creature;
where only unwise were scared of the cat.
Like active ants people were: acceleration.
Electricity, out of nowhere, ignited a fuse -
chained cataclysms caused creation,
which opened the way for abuse…
Like savage animals we are: destruction.
Wars across the earth – millions of lives wasted.
Typhoons of total termination, radiation.
What’s the next phase of evolution… getting cremated?
