And so it unfolds, before our very eyes
The harsh realities of a world gone cold
Devoid of the human warmth which once radiated
From a thousand hearts
Beating a common beat, pumping a family blood
Thick, red love coursing through the arteries
Of this fallen angel called humanity.

The greatest potential ever known
Tossed aside, ostracized and left to decompose
In a most earthly way

If others happened upon our beautiful failure
Would they celebrate our meager triumphs?
Or trumpet our resounding defeats?

Wrap themselves in our severed wings
And fly into the safety of tomorrow
The greatest potential ever known (laid to waste)
Cast aside, demonized, disregarded, and over-played
When this the tragedy of the commons
Draws to a close…
The lights will fade, dim to absolute darkness
And the others, will rise from their seats
Pausing to reflect, on their own plight
Just before shuffling into the aisles and continuing

Onward and upward (can we rise above)
Onward and upward (what humanity has become)
