Man Will Do That On Their Own (Bussokusekika)

Edwin Tanguma 1966 (CA)



Man Will Do That On Their Own   (Bussokusekika)

Could I be the lamb
Or just another nut job
Mankind must decide
I don’t think that aliens
Will really destroy mankind
Man will do that on their own

About this poem

This one was inspired by Revelation 1: 16-18…Oh well…Like I have said…Mankind can continue on their current path and reap what they have sown…The choice is yours…I still hope that things might change so that those nice aliens might help mankind fix this perfect world that mankind has created…Only time will tell…

    First, the title has an error of agreement: You wrote man but gave him the plural possessive their when it should have the singular his.
    Another thing, lines two and four are questionable. How comes nut Job and aliens destroying the earth? These two lines are faulty in thought and logic. A better arrangement is desired.
