Is global warming the greatest challenge facing humankind?
Tornado of Inhumanity
The blaring of the bombs broke the silence
of the still, dark, night.
Inhumanity itself is a monster, it takes over you
until there's nothing you can do.
Inhumanity is a tornado, ripping though mankind,
ripping through our hearts and filling them with hate
until there's no more room for love.
Inhumanity is fire, striving on hate and
The cries of pain and hate are the music of
Man's Inhumanity is in everyone.
It will live on, never die.
This is the greatest threat our world is facing in the
21st Century because Mankind is creating havoc,
fear, and the need for power. This force is one that
cannot be stopped, it is growing.
This is a threat that will last a lifetime.
