The Quest For Power - Poem by Sam Jones

Through conscience comes thought
From thought memory is attained
Shared memories lead to interaction
Sound gifts us with communication
Communication becomes language
Language causes influence
Influence creates society
Society becomes hierarchy
Governance evolves from society
Governments dictate system and law
System and law lead to power
The crucial flaw
Power corrupts us all
