Fickle, Unreasoning Civilized Rampage

We take the legacy we inherit for granted. We take nature, simply for our amusement, to shape as we please. We, we, we. It has been that way, I guess, for eons, the moment the masses grow civilized, educated. We ignore the landscape, the gentle curves of hills and towering mountains. We rape the land, we brutalize the rivers, we abandon our creation to the oceans.

We tear into the soil, we abandon common sense to satisfy our insecurities, our fitful whims. Nothing is every enough. We rampage all in the name of development, we tear the scenery apart.

We do all this, because we can, we want.
