I will build upon this plateau with the bodies of those slain in the name of progress.

I will build upon this plateau with the bodies of those slain in the name of progress.

A Poem by Glenn Davis

I am the end!
This society has
Regressed comfortably 
Back into ignorance.
So I must destroy it!

Stop mistaking technology
For progress.

Your iPhone is
Nothing more than
Sticks used to collect ants
For you to feast upon.
It is merely a tool,
And you are merely a chimp.

I plead you now,
WAKE UP
Or die by my hand!

Who am I, you ask.
God?
The Antichrist?
I am no leader
But you may call 
Me what you wish.

I am the Just
Cultivation of hatred,
Fueled by love of
This civilization
From every Poet,
Philosopher, Artist,
And Great Mind
History has had to offer.

Few have heeded my word
And the rest
They must perish!
Sacrificed upon the 
Altar of iGnorance!

The abstract will be 
Your only savior.

I will be conducting 
The new census.
House to house,
AR in hand!
Knocking on
Or down your Door!
Forcing you to your knees!

"Say something profound, OR DIE!"

Do not praise me.
I am not your leader.
I am the Judge and
Executioner!

You are free to
Do as you please.
I am not here to
Judge the content
Of your mind,
Only that you 
Are using it!

If not,
Precious matter is being wasted
And I shall release you to the elements!

I shall return all
Man made monuments to
The dust that they 
So rightfully deserve to be!

I shall crumble the
Pyramids back into
The sands of time,
Then shatter the hourglass
Because TIME is no longer needed!

The only thing that exists is the past!
The future is only a dream!
There is no such thing as present!

To even contemplate on
The moment of now,
The fact that your senses 
Must process this information,

No matter how fast they may be,
No matter how infinitesimally quick,

That moment has passed.
It is now just history!

Pile it among the others
That we may grow from it.

Dear Mr. Davis,

Thank you for covering such a much needed topic and quite well although I believe that in your dealing with the issue you may have hurt yourself. I also would like to thank you for the read request and for sharing this with us. "I am the Just cultivation of hatred, fueled by love of this civilization from every Poet, Philosopher, Artist, and Great Mind history has had to offer." are my favorite lines. You are off a bit in rhythm and rhyme, but the flow is excellent. And also, make sure you stab the issue dead on up front otherwise you may confuse some readers. But don't get me wrong, you did write very nicely here. Thank you for sharing with me again. Kudos. 9.6/10.

Sincerely,
S. W. Scaggs
