A Poem Written by WordChef_Baker
Humanity — Animality
The boar of the forest in the city.
The urban settlements filled with animosity.
Beast using civilization as a cover.
Everywhere mental imbalance hovers.
They go on in our midst.
Appearing beautiful but they’re evil mist.
Their nature is bestiality,
They disguise in the garments of humanity.
Some ape family of intelligence and skills.
In their labs inventing and experimenting on weapons and pills.
Creating instruments of destruction.
Putting us close to Hades' detention.
Some humans like lions, they hunt progress and success.
Plotting and killing innovative minds of greatness.
The good of others they perceive threat.
Together they attack their victim to death.
The hyenas laugh at others' struggling.
They stay close by, mocking and wishing,
The down fall or demise of others.
Devouring alive their dreams and ideas.
The jackals hanging around the beautiful city,
Watching others mark the sky of time with creativity.
They neither invent nor assist — to them it's gory,
But they sneak in to steal ideas and glory.
Boa and stealth mode animals;
Wearing the skin of best friends.
They stalk silently and constrict your effort and boldness,
Swallowing you and your fruitfulness.
Wolves gangs of cultism pledging loyalty,
To a cause of death penalty.
Passing or receiving the judgment in entirety.
Feeding with joy on their enemies' casualty.
Weasels of the forest of civilization.
Your mission now and always is decreation.
Your DNA codes read serial killers.
Your radar picks signals of blood dealers.
The world an ocean for sharks in action.
They sense blood at all productive vibration.
Their talent and skill is to shred life to pieces.
Their hearts the thought of mercy never reaches.
Young boys and girls like deers,
Hopping on social media advertising their dears:
To opposite sex who treat them as dogs.
Relationship now a hunting game of sex and drugs.
O humanity when has your habitat,
Become home to wild jungle, savannah or ocean habitants?
Why substitute love for animality?
Wearing deceptive habit of religiosity.
You’re dressed in the skin of humanity,
But you stink with the attitude of bestiality.
With stenchy attitude, you’re an animal in human skin;
When you exhibit actions like their kin.
