God speed

The worst of humanity

is sometimes found in

its refinements, its elegance,

its level of sophistication.

Call it boredom or

an insane desire to

see where the limits

are and thus step

off its edge into

oblivion’s deep dark fold.

But the worst of

all is that herd

mentality when all that’s

precious is contained within

that monstrosity that will

entertain no other intrusion

on their lumbering course

crushing all in its

path, the innocent along

with the guilty. There

is a frightful sight

to behold: a civilised

individual with the backing

of countless generations’ knowledge

impressed into that genetic

coding that manifests itself

in a passion or

ideal corrupted by desire.

God save us all!

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
