 Poems for Lovers and Sinners

The gods looked down on man.  
         and didn't like it.
they were corrupt and sinful,
murderers and adulterers
         they wept tears of sorrow -

The gods held a meeting to decide
        what should be done with man
some said destroy them -
others obliterate the earth, start again
        But No -

The main god said no!
we must try and teach...
teach them to love and live in harmony

With our help this can happen
with our understanding
it will take place -

And it did happen
man began to learn to live in peace together
the world became a better place

But the gods still kept a close watch!
