Headlines: US sends striker aircraft carrier to Korean Peninsula.

How many times have you felt on the brink
of crisis?
of war?
of the end of it all?
Many times now.

Tick, tock.
The hands of human history forever reaching
for death?
for destruction?
for the ultimate conclusion?

Reaching, 
reaching, reaching,
like a drowning mammal 
reaches for the 
surface.

Why are we
so stupid?
so arrogant?
so flawed?
Was it creative design?

An experiment gone wrong?
Caged animals just trying to break free
of the mundane?
of boredom?
of life?

Such recklessness.
Such a pity.
Helpless little creatures,
destroying themselves, 
along with everything.
