I Launched The Rocket

I launched the rocket, I destroyed the world
Because of my action's extinction unfurled,
There will be no more flowers no more birth
I started the wars that destroyed the earth,
All from hate, that rocket was soullessly hurled.

Into the blue sky towards God the rocket twirled
Then downwards towards the devil it whistled and whirled;
Then came the end, I now know my souls true worth.
I launched the rocket.

Inside my countries flag I alone now have curled
I was taught of war, peace was imperiled,
Now I know that my sorrow is greater than my mirth
When I pushed that button my conscience was dearth,
Once I saw joy as it destructively swirled.
I launched the rocket.
