They came, they saw, they conquered
They took it, they left it behind, they destroyed it
They changed the face of the earth
They changed the lives of man
They changed the book of the word
Man was a thing to be toyed with
They took lives before they were given birth
Only their laws and rules would stand
They came to bring peace at first
The health of man came second
Replenishing of the planet came third
Man did not hunger or thirst
It was as if he were living in heaven
News spread as if on the wings of a bird
A book these visitors carried around
and as each page was studied and turned
man became happy when he had found
that the title said Serving Man it was learned.
Soon a trip to their world had been planned
and only the fittest of man would go
They held parades and parties across the land
Circuses and carnivals, radio and television show
Soon a wife cried to her husband,
“Please I beg of you to stay”
She grabbed and pulled and yanked on his hand
and yelled out loud, “I have something to say!”
The few people that heard her turned to look as well
"Serving Man is a cook book, everybody run like hell!”
