Good vs Evil, By Brian37

Good vs Evil, By Brian37

 

Since we mastered fire

And crawled from the caves

We manufactured stories

Of how we survived

 

Be it nature

Or of those of our kind

That which harmed us

Deeply frightened us

 

And thus we made

A universal word

We call it evil

In every case

 

When fortunes we find

And nature was kind

Another word

We invented good

 

But neither nature

Our our own actions

That which benefit

Or create factions

 

Nature is not

That of magic

Angry volcanos

Or gods on Olympus

 

Good and evil

ARE universal

A product of existence

Not of myth

 

The bacteria

Cannot reason

It will kill you

Like any human

 

You gain resources

In this life

And falsely attribute it

To a god in the sky

 

Good and evil

Are not of fiction

Not of stories

Made in the past

 

They are universal

And need no concoction

When they happen

It is quite obvious
