A Painting Called Mankind

Mountains of egos,
Waterfallsof Greed,
Rivers of Blood,
Out inoceans of graveyards.

All behind,

A painting called ManKind.

Right Right Right. You are right dear sister. You painted the character of mankind so beautifully. mankind wears a mask to look good, considerate and passionately human but internally there are so many things going on. Anyway we shouldn't forget those who are immaterial in nature and live to serve humanity. Deeply touching poem

C this is so true. Man?kind has always been "I do for me, and that's all I do." I wish that people could just respect one another, even if they disagree about things. Thanx for sharing Cathrine, the world needs to see how foolish they really are, by reading this.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

We can be a dark and evil lot. This is a very pointed and well written lament of that fact. Truly moving write.

A stark picture you paint, of the human family, Lady C. I appreciate your word economy in this work, sometimes, it's best to say what you have to say in as few words as possible. It gets the point across in a much clearer manner.

If we want to survive we have to learn to get over ourselves and start anew. Excellent Pierre.

Man's malice is the result of a process of thousands of centuries, mass murder has become cold blooded science in the circles of the perpetrators and ignorance and misguided perception on the part of their victims. But as long as few are capable of producing feelings and thoughts as reflected in your words in this realm of pain and illusion, hope for better places and times continues to exist. Thank you for creating and sharing. I enjoyed being here. Take care,

You express a great deal with a superb economy of words, Cathrine. Well done. Thank you for this timely message. Love and peace to you,

Compact and concise. I've often, well not really that often, but I have thought that the world maybe better off without mankind.
We've sure messed it up in just a short time. Now we're going in for the kill. Chocking the place to death.
Very well expressed..

Creativity in uniqueness; magnificence in philosophy, and
beauty in poetics, in "A Painting Called ManKind" abounds.

Healthy creative life, Poet!

You have captured so much in a few short lines.

The real art of poetry is to say more with less. You have achieved that here admirably. Well done!
Reviewed by Felix Perry 1/19/2006
Wow this is point blank, cutting edge, and as sharp as a razors blade and unfortunately hard to argue with the logic of it although I still want to try and believe that there is still a chance that mankind will learn.
