The Race of Mankind

The black night turns red
Wolves consume the gentle doves
Upon the hole of the cobra
The whole world in disarray


Male and female, he created them
In peace and love they dwell time –pass 
Upon the light aperture of a poisonous snake
The waves dashed into boat
And became submerged


Downturn in event we see as
Males become females with feminine accessories
Females become males with masculine accessories
The whole world becomes blind
Dwelling under the vine of a mere snake
And under its fig tree

"The whole world becomes blind" So true! Reminds me of Sagan's Demon Haunted World.
