Abysmal

We’ve changed nothing

And learned even less

 

Mnemonic to kill the cancer

That envelops

No self sacrifice

Much too selfish

 

Life is the most blessed of gifts

Each life is a map

To the beginning of time

 

It is waste

To destroy history in ways unfathomable

Seeping poison of thought

That saved the present

At the risk of the future

Just to bury the past

 

Greed and paranoia

Perfect breeding ground for progress

And regression

 

Not a man alive is honest

And the future bleeds at the behest

Of the dishonest

 

Lying to the public

Begins with a lie to yourself

This tragedy is that the punishment for dishonesty

Is the lives of your children

 

Slaves to ourselves

An enemy beyond comprehension

And it pretends friendship

 

Death was never the ultimate price

The price was always your soul

Your humanity

Your children

Our future

 

Given the chance

Who would not save us all

In the utopian myth

 

Dystopian slaying of illusions

Where any can find where they stand

 

Praying for apocalypse

Ending of the world

All must be laid to waste

That it begins anew

 

World born in perfection

Shattered into this

Start again

Flawed

Entropy in reverse

Perfection uninhibited
