Triggers behind a gun
Life being snuffed out so young
Pandemic eclipsing the globe
losing lives, losing hope
Two legged creature, rants and wail
But is he the hero of this tale?
Always depicting themselves as victims
When to forces of Nature they succumb
Taking oaths and making pledges
Yet discarding them all, he edges
Back to his sinful ways of plundering Earth
It is the only species which doesn’t think of its kin
Who keeps greed above all and doesn’t count it as sin
Why not construct something beautiful instead?
Why instil fear and why perpetuate dread?
This self-proclaimed intelligent being for its own sake
Must awake from its slumber, before it’s too late!
