God created man,
White, black, brown, tan
But had an omission
Vital to his noble mission
It’s virtueless savage he created first,
Instead of man of virtues instinctive, first,
One wonders how the omission ,
Crept into, sans any vision?
The Ten commandments, a belated issue
God’s second thought, full of virtuous issues
Edicts, the savage to be virtuous, follow
without as much as a murmur, to follow.
But in God’s creations, savagery is inborn
And Virtues, unborn,
Ever since it’s a fight between habits inborn,
And adopted virtues unborn,
Now the world laments,
Over the erosion of values,
Yes, Virtues have lost its value
But the erosion is natural, no wonder,
No reason to be wondrous
For, the adoptive virtues can’t hold on, long
Against man’s inborn, instinctive, savagery, long.
This is the reason why,
The erosion of values, high.
For it’s the manifestation of the hidden, natural,
Once eclipsed by the virtues, unnatural.
Why now the increase in violence?
The world over, man asks himself, in ignorance,
Doubts, haven’t man turned virtuous?
Shedding his savagery, to be virtuous?
Man can shed his adopted virtues, any time
But instinctive savagery , at no time,
For his virtuosity is a fragile egg-shell cover
Which struggles to suppress his savagery under cover .
Adopted virtuosity is like a Mushroom, all,
Planted in modern man with no root at all
But savagery is instinctive, deep rooted
That can never be up-rooted.
When man turned virtuous,
His savagery eclipsed, to be virtuous
Lying beneath, any time, to change like the embers
Into a blaze of violence, its mood ,its temper.
It’s final to the modern man to think
Why the increase in violence, think,
It’s his atavistic going back to his inborn savagery,
The spectral return to him, of his instinctive savagery.
