All things wonderfully made by nature were designed and intended to change, and/or evolve, according to nature's laws and time-table, not according to mankind's much-less-than imperfectly arrogant and imprudent pragmatism. Invariably, when nature is altered through human tampering, gross distortions and deformed permutations of what once was perfect result, to the earth's sad chagrin.



And there it suddenly was, clear to my muddled mind,
An epiphany-of-a-kind, writing on a blank bare wall
Which only I could see, like, perhaps, an answer
Just for me, but then, again, maybe a grand design
For everyone great and small, universally framed,
Something perfectly pure without manmade name.

Nonetheless, what am I but one lone soul in search
Of what to do, what to say, tomorrow or, yet, today
When worse than wrong some clearly say I am,
Or sorely out of touch, with delusions filled;
My thoughts and lucid words, mine and mine alone,
Beg the wise to act before all is sadly gone.
