Wrote this after having been struck with interest by a quote from the animated movie Flashpoint Paradox. The quote is from the Demon Etrigan. As Etrigan stands a midst a raging battle that is sure to bring about the end of humanity he says, " Behold, Man's final mad disgrace. He chops his nose despite his face.". A line that really encapsulates man's self destructive nature. Which inspired this little bit. Not sure if I will continue to add to it or leave it as is.|
Man's tongue utters words of peace and harmony,
His eyes soft, as to convey a disdain for war.
Whilst underneath the table of diplomacy,
His hands toil fashioning tools of violence and gore.
