Mother of Oblivion

I pray thee Nature,
why have you cursed us so
with homes to tend
and gardens to grow?
Yet worst of all,
for one by another,
you would have us serve
as fathers and mothers
of suffering creatures
doomed to die?
I abandon the charge!
and bid thee goodbye.


I gave you the power
to create life
and you didn't?
You took every hour,
every day, every minute,
every reward
and every treasure,
distorted my name
for baseless pleasure,
gave NONE in return.
For a meaningless life,
by a meaningless death
