Discovery through open-ended fleets
Stuffed with reckless red letter dates.
Mired with myriad conflicts
Kingdoms, empires and estates.
Crises, wars and destruction
Cruel rampant inhumanity.
Piles of flesh for combustion
Threats of nuclear insanity.
Incessant revolutions for human liberation
Of peace through comfortable violence
The forks of history make eerie incisions
Souls still lament in grief of intolerance.
