The Evils of Mankind

Over the echoes of time, and from behind
the dark curtain of evil minds come the
terror of all mankind.

Mankind’s battles with evil has been
paramount in his existence on this earth.
What makes him think that now is the essence
of new birth?

Wars and more wars…
a prophecy for tolled.
From here to eternity…
mankind has bartered its soul.

The arrogance of man…
the evil at his hand.
Who knows when extinction
may be his last reprimand?  

How long will the bells
toll before the evils
of man eradicate mankind?
