 Harry Sweeden. My life in verse.

We were born out of fire and chaos
Molten Lava spewing forth land
The movement of plates so far down below us
Created mountains and valleys so grand…
Then life took hold through the ages
Our world was a forest of green
Great wild beasts created a pathway
For all that was to come and to be…
The most savage ate all that was weaker
Then all life just followed in line
The powerful would take all that they wanted
the scraps for the rest would be fine…
Nothing has changed through the ages
Just a clearer picture to see
The reason the world is still burning
Is now man and his never ending greed!
