The man walks peacefully down the street not a care in the world,

fire rains from the sky burning lives out of existence. The man adjusts his top hat;

soldiers shoot soldiers, bullets ripping through each other. The man continues walking.

women scream as they are raped and abused. The man pays their cries no mind.

Horrific pollution poisons innocent animals dooming them to terrible deaths. The man sips his wine.

Tyrants reign, forcing their insufferable laws on the populace. The man tips his hat.

Criminals are freed from prison wrecking cities across the planet; The man laughs

Beasts of hell ravish the spiritual world, the man continues walking

Natural disasters shake the planet, the man readies his pistol

Children cry as they are enveloped with fear; the man takes aim

People see the man and beg for him to help them, the man does not move

The people plead with all their might; the man remains still

The world weeps, begging for the man to end the suffering………. The man fires a single shot into his own head.

 

The suffering ends.
