Genesis to Genocide

 

In the beginning there was only God
The earth was without form and void
And God said
“Let there be light”
And God saw the light
He called the light the first day
“Let there be a firmament”
“Let the waters gathered together”
“Let the earth bring forth grass”
“Let the waters bring forth the moving creatures”
God created the fishes
And God blessed them
“Let the earth bring forth plants and Cattle”
Then He made man in his own image and likeness
“And let them have dominion on all creatures”
And God blessed them
To subdue the Earth
And God saw everything good
There was evening and there was morning—the sixth day.
God rested on the seventh
Now man exercises his dominion
First, created his high-tech world
Control his own days and nights
Decided to rule everything
He knows but without content
Man saw this beautiful
Beyond his subsistence
He created submarines for the waters
Fighter planes for the sky
Tanks to rule the earth
And soldiers to obey his commands
He found them great and beautiful
But man was never contented
He crated his own enemies
His own war
And finally
his own death

Here, Man comes to rest!
