*A/N* The poem is inspired and dedicated to Muse *

We have fallen into a state of total ignorance.

Offering our selves and Earth little reverence.

 

 

We couldn’t care less of global warming.

Though unnatural disasters are quickly forming.

 

We continually put holes in our atmosphere.

Ou effect on the earth has been quite severe.

 

We don’t notice our earth slowly falling to pieces.

We can only pray now that our unconsciousness all but ceases.

 

 

You may ask why I call such thing unnatural disasters.

For a proper answer feel free to ask our masters.

 

They lie when they state that they are able to fix things.

They are truly pathetic excuses for earthlings.

 

The Chile earthquake altered the Earth’s axis by inches.

With each centimeter our Earth flinches.

 

 

We have slowly turned into unfeeling, hateful robots.

We have stained human history with our ink spots.

 

 

Today war is but a game.

Does no one feel any shame?

 

Playing violent and gruesome games virtually.

Killing whatever opposition mercilessly.

 

Hit a button and 1000 die.

Safe in our metal machines that we have constructed to fly.

 

Lives have become numbers.

It is time we stopped blaming others for our blunders.

 

 

I don’t believe in the word humanity anymore.

But the least we can do is avoid repeating the mistakes of before.
