(nurturing the truth)

~ THE DYING SEED ~

On the shores of constants
In times of need
Crowd the huddled masses
Nurture the dying seed

Come men of righteous anger to battlements
Their fathers before them supplanted and torn
Having instilled their desire to burn the world
They release, a primal scream of poetic rhetoric

On shores of constants
In times of needs
Crowd the huddled masses
Nurture the dying seed

This world a grievous melting pot of greed and adulation
With corruption a constant in every hall of power
With money at the heart of near all contemplation
This world, as Atlantis, deserves to be submerged

On shores of constants
In times of need
Crowd the huddled masses
Nurture the dying seed

There shall come a moment crucial to the very fabric of humanity
When technology threatens to remove the 'God Gene' from man
One final touch of a button, one infinitesimal testimony
That once-and-for-all defines the uniqueness of man

On shores of constants
In times of need
Crowd the huddled masses
Nurture the dying seed

Hi Tony,
I really enjoyed this piece. Those are awesome lyrics! I'd love to hear them in a song. I couldn't agree more about the subject, as I was reading your poem the words transported me to the fires in the Amazon not so long ago.

This world, as Atlantis, deserves to be submerged

Very apocalyptic. Very real.

Hope you're both keeping well. I don't get much time on Cosmo nowadays.

Hey T...This just jumps out filling a soul with shame and regrets for not paying attention to the needs of our world, neglecting it for the selfish motivations of man.  History repeats itself over and over with the mistakes of man with corrupted hearts.  There are always the few that huddle together to try to fix the incompetent actions of man.  Great original imagery to bring the point across.  I really like this one.  xo Love n Hugs, C

My Dear Tony,

Wow!  Very powerful write about our dismal future.  I pity our progeny.

With every passing moment
Mankind becomes a decaying breed
No longer utilitarian
We become The Dying Seed

Love you Bro,
