See here! Enjoy the dichotomy of the brilliant
As humans we forgo capabilities both pure and ill
Here we lay, sentient beings of limitless potential
Rotting away, decomposing, polluting at will
A parasite on our hostess, poor dear mother earth
We continue our prodigal expenditure.
On a withering rock, mistakenly given us birth
We suck the tit; we have yet to mature.
The Universe knows this and turns away
Abandoned us on the Milky-Way
Praying profusely that we might,
Not discover interstellar flight
It need not worry, our brilliance has peaked
And only of ghettoes and corpses we’ll reek
A fruit past its prime and a miserably story
We’re fast to decompose, we’re in a hurry
A sink for the once believed brilliant thoughts
Our fallible culture will finally rot.
Through a box we become bland
Ensuring the devolution of free-will
