The world provides only burdens to the people that we live with. Mankind suffers itself to an end that it does not wish for. The causes are what drives manking to its inevitable fall.

What is this Drunk Root?

The Drunk Root, Takes advantage to the rich

The Drunk Root, Pains children with crying

The Drunk Root, Feels no love

The Drunk Root, Makes men evil

The Drunk Root, Has no heart

Who is the Drunk Root? 

The Drunk Root, Is the one creeping in the dark

The Drunk Root, Is the one taking from the good

The Drunk Root, Is the one faking compassion

The Drunk Root, Is the one gloating

The Drunk Root, Is the one with pride

Why the Drunk Root?

The Drunk Root, Creates all evil

The Drunk Root, Hides the truth

The Drunk Root, Has no heart

The Drunk Root, Is so cunning

The Drunk Root, Is the Devil

The Drunk Root, Will Die

Cleverly orchestrated. :P The flow of ideas were pronounced and prompt, constantly gripping the imagination.

Enjoyable and depthy. Fascinating.

I'm glad the drunk root will die, hopefully soon for there is too much pride, cries, and lack of passion in life today! Very nice and very dark and sad I must say which is amazing because I love those things!
