Of sanguinary incline
Whole of man be alas,
Found so unreachable
To celebrate the mass
Killing of man’s mind,
Hence to spur appetite
In amount meant bind,
With ferocity held light
As to scorn mindfulness
Of insatiable self serve,
Tho it destroys mankind…
Ever wile inner monster
Of man readily persists,
In fixing soul be blind
To his power gone amiss,
Yet demands full assign
Of his tempestuous controls,
Tho man’s dead mind matter
Ignores a bent reach for disaster!
Of insatiable self serve, Tho it destroys mankind… That says a lot! Once again, well done my friend.
Always a special good feeling to get your nod of approval on my work, for which I am most thankful. Thank you ever so much Paulette!
Another profound and thoughtful insight in the story of humanity. The struggle for supremacy creates enormous confusion and mistrust.
At this stage of man’s evolutionary discoveries, where little is left unknown that affects the day to day living of a very large portion of mankind, religion and nationalism and their pecking order of supremacy find to persist on preaching the so called unknown that threatens man’s wellbeing. Money truly is a magnificent philosophical mobilizer of ignorance for those two powerful man made self-serving invented systems. Once again, thank you Rebecca, for your always thought provoking input on my reflections!
I find it interesting how much reverence the collective “we” gives to wealth – so much so that it is used as a benchmark for human value. Thank you for your words and insight.
Thank you Rebecca, for your observation. Rather sad though that we the supposed intelligent of this planet’s species revere currency, in lieu of humane value and achievements. Doesn’t say much for human beings’ evolutionary progress, does it?
I like the rhymes and rythm of this particular poem.
Happy to hear, the while hoping you appreciate the content that cries out in a subtle attempt for mankind to awaken to the powers that that be. That selfish power that is killing man and his world, all for the accumulated wealth of controlling man power’s short self-serving life.
