Crimes Against Humanity

The human mind is a terrible thing
To waste, or taste, if you're not Dr. Lecter.
But it seems to be what makes the world go around.
Surprisingly simple, yet amazingly unsound.

And the most astonishing thing about our 'grey matter',
Is its lack of application concerning things that, well, matter.
When time is wasted on new types of waste disposal,
Instead of wasting time printing information for our perusal.

The human race has no start and no end.
Did they not tell you that at the beginning, my friend?
Then you too have been duped into this sacrilegious existence,
Where living this life is an unholy penance.

No value for time, no concept of true wealth,
And still we strive for all that we can get.
For if we don't acquire while the 'getting' is on,
Then, like our possessions, we too will be gone.

And it is this 'going' which seems to terrify us,
It lingers like a rancid mist over the foulest bog.
So is it alright to possess, to grab, to hog?
Because it's ashes to ashes, and dust to dust.

And why do we whine and cry so much,
When the 'bling bling' gets scratched, scuffed or just touched?
While the billions struggle to survive each day,
We live to 'work' and we live to 'play'.

So ask not why you have not gotten,
How much of what at which time and what reason.
Because the world is you and I and the billions,
And "Me Me Me" is the most blasphemous human treason.
