Regressive humanity

We all want to live a descent life
Wealth is a necessary evil
Wealth has got company
Vices follow the trail...and savage qualities
Humanity takes the regressive way

A Necessary Evil
I often moan about my job,
a certain colleague, and my boss -
I wish I didn't have to go
to work (I wouldn't mourn its loss).

Without a job I'd be quite skint;
it puts the money in the bank -
I think of that and carry on
(unsure of what or whom to thank).

written 9th November for Julia's Unrest of Spirit contest...

Premium Member Why Afghanistan
Many lives were sacrificed throughout the years in war.
Although it's very tragic, we've always known what for!

They put their lives in danger, to keep our country free.  
A necessary evil, we understand, just had to be.

Afghanistan's another story, the lives we've lost is so unfair.
 'cause it's hard for us to justify, exactly why the hell we're there!

Money Written: by Miracle Man 2-19-2020 Pompous people with money generally feel, An entitlement attitude is no big deal. Not having been required to work for a living, They're so full of themselves that they're unforgiving. Money's the root of all evil but gets things done, But a necessary evil under the sun. By hook or crook it usually gets its way. As long as man exists the Dollar's here to stay.

Necessary Evil
take this blade 
and cut your wrists
make escape holes for the devil

let him leave you
through the bleeding
make the world then somewhat level

it's a sacrifice 
most unholy
but for the good of all mankind

so take thy soul
unto the slaughter
and you'll find i'm right in time

sure i'm just 
your shoulder demon
and yes i've fallen from what's divine

but no lives
will get saved this evening
'less you're willing to cross the line...

They unnoticed live
They nod, rarely shout
Silence is preferred,
Noise produced only when necessary.
Blind by choice,
Deaf by accident.
Intelligent on special occasions,
Usually mundane and somewhat obtuse.
Their characteristics shine in dark.

They alone stand,
Gathering is necessary evil.
Goodness is their way.
Intoxicated in passion
Few live arid.

They sing when communicating
and whisper only in dreams.
You meet them everywhere,
Yet unnoticed they live.
