Humanity Is Often A Place Of Forgetfulness - Poem by Mark Heathcote

Humanity is often a place of forgetfulness
It's often a place of solitude
A place of dreadfulness, fretfulness
It's often a dwelling place a mirror eschewed
A place without benevolence
A place the neediest feel subdued
A place people wander around, incredulous
Humanity is a place you find the destitute
The place you come across negligence
The place you'll find the most ineptitude
The place you'll find the most resentfulness
The place you'll find the most crewed
The place where cruelty finds its prevalence
The place charity can lead to decrepitude
Humanity is a place of opposites of redolence
Sadly, it's a place of corruption as a way not to preclude
Sadly, it's a place of hucksters directionless
Sadly, often it's the place of a cold absolute
Take my hand and I'll promise all you Denizens
A better life, I'll promise not to pillage or loot
I'll promise you humanity, forget all other parables.
