Speak of mans, inhumanity to man
And his senseless and agonizing wars.
Speak of his innate obsession with self
And his perpetual pursuit of cause.
Speak of his failings, examine his hurts.
Study reveals the root of all discord,
The world is led by the unperceiving,
Vision when blunted, a rapier sword!
In this world of war and anxiety
Man's future and being are so pending.
His destiny appears destruction bound -
With the failings of men un-amending.
In the ultimate moment of destruction
When the existence of the world does cease
And man has passed into oblivion
What then of humanity and peace?
