WHAT ARE WE THEN?

What are we then, without the law –
Angels every one?
Just look to where real life is raw
and cast your eyes upon
the atrocities and the low vile acts
In which the human creature delves;
what would be then the morbid facts
given free rein to be ourselves?
I think perhaps we live a dream,
or sheltered lives at best;
every time we fight a war extreme
we are faced with that vile test.
The results of which have always been
a tragic history to detest.
