DESTRUCTION
Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

I don't understand the reason
Why Mankind loves to Hate
And when he destroys the Earth
He will surely share this Fate..

For all Life shares the same Earth
Life shares the Sacred Breath
And when Man kills his one home
Man puts himself to Death!

I don't understand the reason
Why Humankind is cruel
God gave Man such a fine brain
And he always acts the Fool!

Man picks apart his Brother
His Religions all cause Wars
He cannot accept Diversity
And Hates it to the core!

The Rich think they are better
Each Religion knows they are...
And they label the rest Unworthy
Humankind is such a Scar...

What Man can't control, he kills it
He calls it "sport" and "fun"..
With his brain he won't solve problems
Because he Loves to use the Gun!

It answers all the problems
With one POW he has control
And all the Life he's taken
Eats away his very Soul!

He hasn't learned one lesson
And it seems he never will
And when he finally kills our Earth
Will he finally get his thrill?!!...
