How strange
This abomination...
an execution, while play
The howling strings
Of the cellos
Of the veins
Of the time
Of humanity.

To the discord
Are the who and what,
the how and the why
Ever lost to that
of the cords
of the strings
of the howling
of History.

"Fix this", they cry,
the masses whose
words fester and boil,
carried words, spoken indirect
of the leaders
of the struggles
of the home
of the brave

The final breath
of humanities dying words
"in ashes, from ashes"
She speaks, so melancholy
of the future
of the present
of the past
of Civilization.

"World!" She pleads
with a cry, so finishing
"Heed and listen!"
To them she speaks
Of the necessary
of the desired
of the curses
of their blessings...
"The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet." - Plato.

You want to fix the world? Stop, Listen, Learn, Attempt.

I believe listen goes after learn and think goes between Learn and Attempt. Otherwise, it is a reassuring bright light.

I like it's structure, repeating "of" in each part creates an awesome rhythm, it sounds great.
