Which would be worse: To live as a monster, or to die as a good man?


Where have the Great Ones gone?
I look in this world and see madness and hate.
I see children in the street digging for food in trash.
I see people fighting people for a stretch of road.

Where have the Great Ones gone?
I look and see powerful men doing as they please.
I see men living richly as others beg for money on the streets.
I see people trying to scrape by while others laugh at them.

Where have the Great Ones gone?
In their time it was peaceful and loving.
In their time you wouldn’t see children digging for food in trash.
In there time people would share and try to get along.

Where have the Great Ones gone?
In their time powerful men would do something for others.
In their time men would be equal in wealth.
In their time none would laugh at a child like me.
