Civilisation!

Civilisation lurches on in its predictable way

towards self-destruction we blunder forth

as always greed is the main driving force

no thought for the damage to the earth

or millions of lives lost on their power trip

when the warmonger’s lose their grip!

 

To many wars have been created for gain

countries destroyed for their resources

the most powerful country has to decide

the presidential election has been decided

financial troubles are haunting this nation

hint of a conflict creating devastation!

 

Never ending hostility dominates world news

so much spent a continuous drain on taxes

nations find it hard to cope money is tight

humans have always been a tribal feudal race

with modern technology we are out of control

uncertain future as we head for a black hole!

 

Massive population resources are shrinking

oil that rules our existence must soon end

can new ways of prolonging life be found

to stop our total wipe out coming too early

yet the corrupt part of our behaviours clear

the clock ticks down as doomsday is near!

 

Driven by greed self-interest is the master-key

but something is going to arise

what will tip the balance as the masses believe

what politicians promise to deliver

around us much happens that we do not see

how long before we all hear the banshee!

 

Another conspiracy scenario or a possibility?
