History is learned, no more as a lesson
We are merely Cain and Able
A brother slain in jealousy
Then one but now in numbers
The land and all its creatures wild
Keepers turned to landlords
Her loins and bosom taken
Torn by the rapist fist
Lost children abandoned by their morals
Given stones to throw
A disease we try to understand and fail to cut away
Before it is too late
We are led by instigators in their cause

I am a man with one distinguishing manner. I view life as a nonstop roll by circus. Whatever my senses signal to my brain, it is received as humor.

I agree, this is a very enjoyable and emotional piece.

It is a wonderful glimpse into history and the human mind.

Wonderful word choices as well!
