Destiny

Sunrise on savannah plain,
graceful flight of noble crane,
silent wings of gliding bee,
drifting leaf from ancient tree,

wonders for the world to view,
lost to all but special few,
modern man with savage ways,
counting down our ending days,

worker ants we slave and toil,
ignorant of sky and soil,
lost in pointless task and deed,
wounded planet left to bleed,

die is cast by dark desire,
destined for eternal fire,
hellish flame engulfs us all,
man and beast together fall,

sunset with atomic dawn,
empty lands of hope forlorn,
blackened soil of absent trees,
silent world no birds or bees,

wonders lost before their time,
man the cause of epic crime,
savage man of modern days,
grieving for their former ways.
