The Drowning of Humanity
A rant against how some people treat animals. It broke my heart to see these pics. Their despair is palpable. The widespread abuse of children and animals reflects a world where humanity is slipping away in the galloping unfolding of technology.
Trusting hearts, abandoned,
pinned to a mast of treachery
in crucifying coldness / zombified betrayal.
Is this how low we have sunk?
Perhaps indeed time for The Flood.
Biblical, cleansing and all reaching.
Sweeping the innocents and the arcane
into its jaws of destruction / renewal.
I surrender myself willingly.
A champion for their unconditional love,
the heart-rending pain of the wounds
for the lessons they tried to bring us.
Let me drown alongside.
