I do not KNOW but I suspect.
The world is not as we accept.
Reality is mutable,
we tend to see what we expect.

Although it seems impossible
I think it highly probable.
We do not really understand
what is and is not possible.

Although we try to make a stand.
The future we cannot command
We must allow for sudden change,
when fate decides to take a hand.

Then we must quickly rearrange
although in fact we find it strange.
The way we see reality
however limited our range.

We must admit reluctantly
that times are changing rapidly
Perhaps much faster than we think
as we approach maturity.

We may be standing on the brink
of abysses as black as ink
The end of all humanity.
Be jettisoned to downward sink.

Because we would not learn to see
That all men should live peaceably.
Another failed experiment
which must be erased completely

    Yes if we don't all learn to live peacefully there could be serious consequences..
