    My hopes are blighted, my heart is broken, my life a burden, everything around me is sad and mournful; earth has become distasteful to me, and human voices distract me. It is mercy to let me die, for if I live I shall lose my reason and become mad.

    Earth
    Great Spirit, I am unworthy;
    My species has disgraced itself.
    Of all the species that live, or have ever lived,
    Mine is the lowliest.
    Lower than the flowers who fill the air with sweet pollen,
    Lower than the trees who encircle the Earth with their roots,
    Lower than the insects, rulers of Earth
    Since the beginning of time,
    Lower than the darting fish,
    Lower than the soaring birds,
    Lower than the four-legged creatures,
    Who are the beating heart of the living Earth.

    Great Spirit, my shame is as deep as the ocean,
    And my sadness is unbearable.
    I pray for enlightenment,
    But fear that my prayer is too late.
    Great Spirit, if this be so, then I pray for extinction.
    Let my species become extinct, and vanish from the Earth.
    Let my loins be barren,
    Let my seed not sprout,
    Let the race of men fall like leaves.
    Let my fields grow wild,
    Let my fences crumble,
    Let my cities turn to dust, and become forests.
    Let the grass drink my blood;
    Let my body be food for worms.
    Great Spirit, let me die, that the Earth may live.

    I like it, in terms of poetry.

    But aren't we the only species with moral agency and therefore the only species capable of being "low"?

    Dogs can be low. Easy to spot on certain breeds and your pet.

    There is no point in anything


    So anything at all is a sphere

    That is physics explained

    Thanks to my beer


    So screw Newton

    Einstein got it wrong


    Force does not equal mass

    Multiplied by acceleration

    Force equals is strong in this one

    And weak in the easily led

    So be a Skywalker or a storm trooper


    Either way spock was better

    Alas it's time

    To end this song

    I dedicate this to you

    And God help me wheres my thing

    I hold it high and want u to know
