The Story of Humanity

There once was a people,
So kind to the Earth;
Then came the conquerers,
The slavers,
The power grabbing
They ravaged the Earth,
Ate everything in the kitchen,
Left the bowls dusty.
They built hell on Earth
And slaughtered God’s people,
The poem worshippers.
And then they got away with it.
We tried to hold them accountable,
But we messed up,
And there was no justice.
And for a while, it made us think,
“What’s the point?”

And when the bad people came back, we thought,
“Why try and stop them?”
Blinded by cynicism,
Lazied by money,
And they
Almost got
Away with it
But then this guy
A poem
That made the
Antagonist so
He exploded.
And everyone thought,
“Well, that was weird.”

But then the guy
Who wrote the poem
Went to testify before congress and said,
“I’m a wizard from another dimension.
God sent me here to stop the antichrist.
My poem killed Donald Trump because he was the antichrist.”
