Man, more violent than loving

To look good in the mirror

Created ointment, cream, potion, medicine

But to gain power

Invented poison, spear, sword, gun, bomb

Used plants and herbs to heal

Wielded sticks and stones to hurt and kill

What good to the human is ingenuity,

engineering and science

that manufactures weapons in factories

and weoponizes viruses in labs
