Colossus

Unwittingly, through our unsatisfying desire for more,
mankind has given birth to the Colossus.

Able to manifest, and combine the forces of nature,
striking unpredictably, anywhere, anytime across the globe,	
not heeding boarders, nor mans defences.

As of now, the Colossus's ability for destructiveness is limited.
Yet still foolishly, blindly, nourishment for the beast is forthcoming,
poisons, pollutants, arrogantly pumped into the atmosphere.

So far as an infant, Colossus has only thrown tantrums.
But to continue, down this road we travel,
fearful we should be, of the day, the tethers break, 
and all the matured rage, of the Colossus is unleashed.
