Mankind

Written by: norman littleford

Isn't it great to be human
hold the fate of the world in your hand,
to find out about the universe
and learn things we don't understand.

To be the dominant species
and take everything we need,
destroy anything that's in our way
just to fulfill our greed.

Trying to improve on nature
with concrete, bricks and glass,
removing such necessities
as trees and plants and grass.

Don't worry about other life forms
they already know who is best,
and arrogance and violence
will take care of the rest.

I pray if there's a God out there
let this not be our fate,
show us a way to turn around
before it's much too late.
