Inverted

Updated on October 30, 2015

Once upon a time,

the world was a place

where the people were of different races.

Different faces

big and small,

short and tall.

Before the grace that we know today,

they were charged with emotion.

Hateful, greedy, envious,

lusty and unjust beings.

Elders told stories back then

of how they descend from sinful creatures

as it was explained by preachers.

Primitive animals that developed the power

to reduce the world to nothing

wielding weapons of mass destruction.

What kind of hell!
