Seth, The Third Son Of Adam - Poem by Laurence Overmire

Substitute man
neither Cain, nor Abel

inconsequent
without recognition

hardly noticed
a day-to-day breeder

of subsequent generation
hordes of millions

to propagate a world
securing a future

never asking for more
earthen hands in harmony

making the bread
of Life.
