Caution the Warnings of Fate.

Caution the Warnings of Fate.

A Poem by Commissioner Martinez

Birthed in a certain sphere of innocence,
Given an immaculate, virgin slate, 
My grasp on ills were unknown in essence;
A pure state fate-bounded to decimate.

Plagues, varying maladies, took flight.
Debacles descended in ample loads.
Everyone equally predisposed in foresight, 
Yet, I caught all, engulfed its lodes .

Innocence drowned, gasping in bleak waters, 
And aggression clawed from its drab abyss.
I became one with its wicked manners,
And was consequently deprived from bliss.

Don't become hostility's delegate
Or one shall be inflicted with my fate.
