Against Humanity

Our world was fashioned flawlessly,
purpose perched purely.
its beauty sealed sweetly
Like the journey of a rose.

Dreamers dream swiftly,
Fishermen fish profusely,
But the living lies that breed men
has smothered them to a downward spiral.

Desire flickers for greatness.
Wanting and seeking for paramount prowess,
The hallowed place we once dwelt
is now suffused with surreptitious despair.

The earth encumbered their cravings,
Richness of raging unity coveted,
But their infuriating resentment
Has made the waft of death unrated

Beyond the gentle the gush of a storm,
The coolness of the raging fire,
Our world that once blossomed
has been splashed with splendid manslaughter.

What truth could be behind these lies?
What could be the ultimate sacrifice
to make this dreadful pandemonium suffice
the bloodshed of innocent honesty...?

    Smile ~ They just started playing, "Christ 'Has Risen,'" by Matt Mars on "K'Love.'" ~ And, aside from congratulating "Your Beauty, O.O," upon this weeks featured poe, my dear; a verse amid intensity and intrigue; for some reason I feel while as viewing its profound that I Am at a plays rehearsal getting prepared for the opening of a productions show and, 'splendid manslaughter,' is a definite peeper keeper line "My, 'Sweeet O.O'" ~ "Love, 'Always,'" John!:) ~

    they call, they called, they are calling still! (and yet they reject) and istead invoke death and ill.
