In his natural state, man is antisocial and disordered,
Falling into anarchy, brutality, conspicuous consumption,
Life, health, and wealth ruefully plundered –
Without any hope for redemption.
In seclusion, on he poorly fairs,
Feigning happiness where none exists,
Living, as it were, on antiquated fares –
Withering from the rudimentary tools he enlists.
In time, society forms law and order,
Forever binding man to man, neighbors alike,
Liberating those who’d act as fodder –
Were they from this social structure to take a hike.
The congruence of civilization soon breeds rot,
Degradation, and the violation of natural law,
Man against man, Earth up in a knot –
Vile competition for resources, destruction at the core.
Then, virtue denied space, hope completely vanquished,
Measly, poor, nasty, brutish, and short life becomes,
Death beacons to all, both lowly and distinguished –
Torrential bloodshed, earth yearns for prior calms.
Injurious infringement on humanity’s inalienable rights,
Fosters discontent, malice, and environmental degradation,
Letting lose hedonistic fights –
World disintegrates, nation against nation.
Innocuously, a small movement takes shape,
Formed by malcontents of the powers that be,
Liberators, forward thinkers, adorning that philosophical cape –
With one goal: a cleaner, safer, ordered earth see.
In these steps, collective action does arise,
Forced by the ravages of enmity, order is restored,
Leftists, right wings, all human excellence advise –
Wins: hope found, man protected, nature conserved, peace bestowed.
