An Infuriated World

Our gift to our children is ruined

The earth is in agony and showing its wrath

People of unrest are everywhere

To end oppression is their goal

The people are angry

They are hungry for food and even more hungry for change

Greed has embedded into the very cells of the corrupted leaders

The people riot to show their demands

Demanding that the tyranny of their leaders must stop

In defiance the young and the old stand before their government to make it their own

Death everywhere, not just with people, but with those closest to nature

The avian, bovine and sea life creatures struck down by some unknown cause

The earth screams as it’s wounds widen

Rising heat plays the dirge of droughts

Volcanic eruptions exposing the raging fire from within

Floods washing its way as if nothing existed in its path

Earthquakes rupturing that which is above, leaving destruction all around

And then the waters recede and vengefully strike

Giant tsunamis awoken by the shaking ground

Causing oceans to swell as if taking a deep breath and then blasting the shores

Destruction is everywhere, no continent left untouched

The man-made energy wounded by the quakes, no longer can be contained

Now its arm of death slowly seeps out, into the land, into the water

Both young and old to be victims of the unfettered beast
