God made the world for all. Man misappropriated it to himself.

God made world in just six days,
From up above heaven.
Then he said to himself, let
Me rest on day seven.

What He made was wonderful,
Simply out of his wish;
Mountains, valleys, rivers, seas,
Full of fowl, beast and fish.

In His image He made man,
Asked him to rule the rest.
Little did he know man would
Go on a selfish quest.

He verily turned the earth
Into a hopeless place,
Emptying the earth’s bowels,
So cars may have a race.

Man killing his bretheren;
A country, proud of might,
Bombing so many countries,
Yet praising human rights!
