There was a man,

A simple man,

A man with an infinite world to explore 

With infinite possibilities 

A world of beauty.

 

As the man grew clever he mapped out the

world building cities and towns.

But as he built more and more he had less

and less. 

Beauty and resources depleted 

Hills and mountains for factory's and mines.

 

Until nothing.

Nothing left at all

The man transcended 

Beyond all odds, avoiding meteors, solar

Storms, pulsars and exploading suns.

Only to be destroyed by himself.

Transcended to glory and knowledge

Yet sinking into his own quicksand 

Building more and more, sinking

more and more

Extinction on a massive scale 

To the penultimate downfall of the old man

To the penultimate downfall of the human

race

Think!
