WAR, THE PRESERVER OF LIFE

The Earth was not created good
Unless killing be so referred
Man in Eden misunderstood
That paradise was absurd.
God made the virus and the germ,
The talon and the fang;
The brain in man that he learn
These things to understand.
For life is war to survive
One species against another;
All seeking to stay alive
To preserve their precious Mother.
Long in conflict they will fight
Lest all this wrong be really right.
