Destruction
by Henry Burt Stevens
7/23/2004

The new century
dawned destructive
threaded with
an old die

A locknut
soon tightened
the world
into war

Forces older
than sand
under the feet
of sons of Abraham

Picked a scab
soon a hemoroage
from New York City
to streets of Bagdad

Old hates, new weapons
new lies, old pretends
greed raw power
faced off in ruin.

We have a responsibility as human beings to not let the "greed and raw power" overtake us or blind us to the truth. Great poem!!
