World War III

I think we will be seen, if there is anyone left to see us,
As a crazy people insane;
Who, in a quest for technological superiority
In service to a concentration of economic power,
Consumed the natural resources of the earth
To protect our interests at the expense of all others.
And in doing so created such weapons of destruction,
Obliterating the natural resources of the earth
And what fragile biological life support systems remained,
(With prayers uplifted to respective Gods!)
Leaving what could have been shared
to no one.
