How far have human beings come from their early days,
when bloodthirsty monsters lurked beyond that yonder hill,
menacing Midgard like the giants of Jötunheimr?
Not far I must admit, nay, not too far at all!
We still belong to what we can see or are shown,
all else become more alien than the Martians are!
So we are bound by the breadth of our horizon
as we had been and will always be, blind with fear!
Now we have seven major divisions, with two
mostly uninhabited but the remaining five
are forever at each others’ throats without rue
and we suffer, while the totalitarians thrive!
The deals of war come with their profits, that is true
but terrorism has always been their bastard child!
