The plague of mankind

 

A blue marble planet in the midst of space

A world of ice and glaciers cover its innocent face.

 

Primitive man wrapped in furs

Carry flint weapons following the wild herds.

 

Hunter gatherers, a nomadic race

Slowly pass over the world’s cold face.

 

The ice caps melt in the warming sun

The changing face of the world has begun.

 

Continents are remolded by the flood

The face of the world had changed for good.

 

Old civilizations fell as new ones arose

And man survived as he always does.

 

Mud brick homes sprang up around the globe

And Kings were born to rule the herd.

 

Stone replaced mud, steel replaced stone

The modern world had been born.

 

The Bronze axe fell to the iron sword

And men fell to the guns that roared.

 

The world would never be the same again

Gone was its innocence drowned in blood and pain.

 

The riches of the earth have been mined and sold

Her face has been disfigured and left lifeless and cold.

 

Her sweet air becomes poisoned and harsh to breathe

Her oceans are becoming barren with polluted seas.

 

The plague of Mankind races to the end of his evolutionary reign

The world will heal itself from his inflicted pain.

 

The death bell is tolling for the human race

The world is eager to regain her innocent face.
