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?
