Thus was sent with revelations

Man, the most brilliant

Of all of God’s creations.

Most creative, most evolved

On their knees, in front of man

all meek creatures did fall.

He made brilliant use

of every mount and grain

And not a single drop

Did he let go in vain.

But in the light of his brilliance

He was soon engulfed 

With all and sundry

and left to convulse.

Stunned and lifeless

he watched all die

Yet in the ego of his brilliance

All he did, was – deny, deny, deny.
