Intelligently Destroyed



Curious nature men, with a brain
atoms linked together, break the chain
end of a war big bomb style
rebuilding their nation, took more than awhile
researching, secret hidden lives
locked up heads, from best friend wives
mining, resourceful human education’s
academic talent, mathematical computations
populations destroyed, to save
sending the enemy to his grave
a race, to annihilation race
a fact we'd have to embrace
a world of sanity, gone mad
the earth destroyed, from one launching pad
daily distractions, from the threat
a non-retractable gamble, from a jet
our eventual, future demise
century's aging, old darkened sky's
humanity to reclaim, from contribution
a global civilization, disputing solution
