The average human's fate

by Professor Leskinen   Jan 22, 2018

Ah, the pleasant smell of gasoline
Just one spark away to end humanity
The wildlife gone, the trees now rotten
The efforts and dreams of the past forgotten

Look down at all the fools who sweat, cry and bleed
As knowledge slowly gets replaced by ignorance and greed
Yet still expect the powerful to help you or to care
When your mistakes leave you with a debt you cannot bear

"Work half as hard, have twice the fun, just spend it all today
Because tomorrow, you won't be the one who has to pay
Value yourself more than the world, because they aren't you"
Your pride repeats so many times, you think that it is true

Eat 'till you're stuffed, your body's fine, no need to worry at all
Ignore the starving children that you see dying out the door
Make sure to dress up extra well, so others find you "hot"
Transform into a different being, all for the sake of "love"

Envy the strong, pity the weak, you aren't worth of saving
I'll let you out my Noah's ark until your hopes have faded
And once you're desperate enough, you will become my slave
Six of the seven sins are used, so wrath is all I'll take

    A great message behind this piece. We all need to be alittle more appreciative toward others as well as ourself. Life is short we need to live it to its fullness!!!!!
