Fuel

Two hundred years from
The first aerial bombing
We would have burnt
All the earth’s gasoline
And yet our thirst
Be unquenchable.
We may then slake it with blood
Flavored with our own hate-fables.

We will never satisfy our thirst until we destroy everything we love. Our innate programming is to fight or flee, and the new evolution is trying to change that response with a more loving one. Will we ever succeed?

A very thought provoking piece.
