Progress? - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg
Whatever one man can invent
to benefit his fellow men.
Some other man without consent
will twist its purpose if he can..
A simple too for men to use
in pursuit of their sustenance.
Is always open to abuse
dependent on the circumstance.
A digging stick becomes a spear
a way to kill the enemy.
Men have made progress it is clear
improving their ability.
To kill more men efficiently
Mass killing now is common place.
Man is mans worst enemy
that is the truth we have to face
Eventually the human race will
disappear and leave no trace.
Unless we change our attitude.
it is most fitting that we should.
Another failed experiment
an error Mother Nature made.
She made us too belligerent
to live in peace I am afraid.
