Annihilation besieges civilization

This generic creek king mortal mwm 
   (who generally river ears the bay sea gully feels ire ate 
asper propensity plundering positive human qualities 
   tested to the max), bait
ting virtue with rapacious opprobrious 
   malicious lugubriousness, and hatred create
head via the violent wickedness yawping zealously 
   oceans of tears that in un date
every nook and cranny of society, wrenching, 
   whip-sawing, and hammering extirpate
ting, the delicate nuances that anthropological fate
bequeathed to Homo sapiens 
   species and genus undermining great
ness brought forth by artistic, democratic, 
   and graphic accomplishments with HATE
diluting the virtuous unification treatises 
   agonizingly tried to insulate
basic rights, whence erosion, corrosion, 
   and abrasion with goliath gangrenous monstrosities of late
subtract at frightful pace, the very survival of mankind and doth mate
absolute evil that percolates into the body electric, 
   where bloody fiendish genies prosper upending immunity 
   fostering broods that deign devious strategies in Nate
to destroy any salient sliver via BuzzFeed ding fifty shades of a gray pate
outwitting tentative grasp upon survival 
   barely fending off lashing off faux kings who e quate 
might with right, and bring out the big guns 
   which blitzkrieg magazines fire at greased lightening speed rate
this battle whereby competing credos, ethos, 
   and grand Poobah grinds by force state
mints that all most obey lest Das Capital life will not tolerate
nasty, short and brutish torture engendering wailing ululate 
diminish in a vain attempt to escape the maws of madness 
   where the grim reaper doth patiently wait.
