Embittered by his own creations,
Tired of all pale animations,
Man set out to conquest the world.
No fear in stride,
With peacock pride,
He lifted his head too high.
And fell off the brink of precipice.
From sudden flame and light
To darkness and cold ice.
Ah, for ignorant pride,
Is ignorant in deed.
Is ignorant in greed.
Is ignorant in whimsical wanderings.
And man is, truly is,
Too ignorant to heed
The fate of ignorant pride.
