    If You’re Not Taking Bullets, You’re Making Them, Lesson From WWII

    Sadly, “…it’s funny how one insect can damage
    So much grain…”, how 400 years of religion
    Of scientism, one instant, evolutionarily, in the life
    Of the Universe, can extinct all life, Earth,
    Destroy all grace. Finally, humanity without a trace.
    Or, will you leave no footprints, that followed
    None, which will echo in all ways, always?
    Mothball NASA now, before it ends all.
