Treasure Island

Evil that Men Do


Evil that men do
Curdled blood splattered bones humanity weeps and cries alone
There is evil in this world all abound
Arrives at the heart with a gun's sound
My friends Evil that men do is all around
Yougoslavia, Afganistan, Columbia or Berrut
Evil is the cause of our fall and at it's root
Like the curse of Lucifer it hounds us all
In the 21st century it's having a ball
Broken limbs, frightened eyes, empty bellies and silent corpses
The smell of gun powder and headless bodies
It is the cause of much misery and pain
With evil my friends there is nothing to gain
First, second or the gulf war
Evil is a serpent that bites us all
It's venom is deadly it's mistress is envy
It is the cause of poverty, famine, distress it is the key
The doorway to hell, pitting brother against brother
Making countries fight against one another
The root cause of our worlds divide
It takes us all on one hell of a ride
Rape, carnage, murder, myhem, war are it's twins
Making humanity pay for Adams sins
Evil that men do some for cause
some with out pause
In it's shadows terror evolves
Through it's window fear revolves
Nepolean, Hitler, Osama, saddam all alike
It's time to send men's evil packing on a bike
It is the seat of the seven deadly sins
As it pulls it's fangs and gives us a grin
With green eyes pointed ears and red horns
It is the curse on humanity it is the thorn
Good and evil together they were born

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
