THE BETTER FEW

Mother nature guards our future,
She carefully constructs our wars,
For tis our existence she must nurture,
According to the creator’s laws.
Though her harsh logic seems so cruel,
It is the way the Earth was made,
We live according to her rule,
Lest our life on Earth doth fade.
Oh we can argue “ifs” and “buts,”
But in conclusion it is true,
It is all about bolts and nuts,
From which our civilization grew.
So when warfare culls our flocks,
We survive; the better few!
