The Beast Called Man


As a lad I once saw a young man
Get shot in the street like he was nothing
I remember the fears in his eyes
I felt the pulse of his heart when the trigger
Was pulled and I realise
The beast is not far from the man
I remember the pain in his girlfriends' eyes
She was pregnant for him
Now her baby will have no father
Nor she a man to care for her
And I realised the cruel in man
Makes him less than a beast
