 ramblings and things

Self Destruction

It was a world of two ideologies
Both wanting to hold sway
Neither of which were prepared
To give anything away
Now it's a world of two Empires
Neither of which are ready to stop
But the strange thing is the same
Type of people are still at the top
The world is still full of poverty
Disease, famine and despair
But the Megalomaniacs in charge
As always just don't care.
Nobody seems to find
The situation rather odd
The destruction each will cause
In pursuit of their form of god
And very few seem prepared
To ask the question why
That pursuit pf power requires
 Many millions may have to die
Perhaps it's nature's way of stating
In a form both graphic and succinct
It's very nearly the time for
Mankind to go extinct.
