saturday med.itations: Destruction Week


In the beginning was the earth.
It was beautiful. And man lived upon the earth.
And man said: “Let us build condominiums and skyways.”
And man covered the earth with steel and concrete.
And man said: “It is good.”

On the second day,
Man looked upon the clear blue waters of the earth.
And man said: “Let us dump sewage and waste into the waters.”
And man did. The waters became dark and murky.
And man said: “It is good.”

On the third day,
Man gazed at the forest of the earth.
The tresses were all green.
And man said: “Let us cut the tress and build things for ourselves.”
And man said: “It is good.”

On the fourth day,
Man saw the animals leaping in the fields and playing in the sub.
And man said: “Let us trap the animals for money and shot them for sport.”
And man did. And animals became scare.
And man said: “It is good.”

On the fifth day,
Man felt the cool breeze in his nostrils.
And man said: “Let us burn our refuse and let the wind blow away the smoke and debris.”
And the air became dense with smoke and carbon.
And man said: “It is good.”

On the sixth day,
Man saw the many kind of people on the earth different in race, color, and creed.
And feared and said: “Let us make bombs and missiles in case misunderstandings arise.”
And man did. And missiles sites and nuclear warheads checkered the landscape.
And man said: “It is good.”

On the seventh day,
Man rested. And the earth was quiet and deadly still.
For man was no more.
And it was good!
