Word of the Day Challenge #62-Untitled Poem

Man
let loose
corrupts a world
forsaking everything
to gain…..
and that there 
is the million dollar question.
War
guns
drugs
created to keep down the masses
to produce children of violence
who in turn indoctrines others
to maintain their place in history.
Voices raised in protest
silenced quickly
shouted down by ignorant men
or turn up dead
their words
their work
its disappearance
remains a mystery.
There are those
who would have
all beneath them
to take what is given to them
to hell with what else they need.
There are those who have done nothing for this world
other than to take
and take some more.
Death is coming
he cares not for privilege
in the end he brings them down
and all become equal once more.
