Mankind - Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

Mankind has conquered the world
In a parade of technological success
A display of the superiority of the human brain
Mankind leaped into the future
Dressed in a silky gown of pride

Mankind with his immense brainpower
And his hunger for more resources
Bulldozed the least gifted animal species
Eradicating them in their millions
Declaring them extinct in a century
Closing the history books on them
In celebration of his success

Mankind turned away from the Creator
Declaring Science as the creation tool
Devoid of any spiritual connection
Lacking any spiritual input
Science was born out of lack of faith
In the mighty Creator who created the universe
The stars in their billions
And the cosmic forest with its many lights
Mankind lost the spiritual warfare

Mankind with his multiple personalities
Engorged on the fruits of the earth
With his bullimias appetite
Beautiful forests were destroyed
And the garden of Eden decimated
Lost for generations to come
The spiritual blackout was allowed to thrive

Mankind with his immense resources
And a desire to conquer the universe
Started entering space
The domain of the gods
Mankind with his supersonic rockets
And his telescopic eyes
Pushed the limits of discovery
Expanding his reach beyond the solar system
In a reckless abuse of power
Peeping into the heavenly worlds
Where stars live

Mankind with his pompous EGO
Secretly searched for the Creator
In the cosmic forest of lights
With his band of gadgets
Crossing the sacred line
Trespassing in the backyard of GOD
The Holy grounds breached
In a apocalyptic declaration of war
The created against the Creator
A futile war
