Man fallen
Author
Les Feedler

We continue to insist that change is progress

self indulgence is freedom and novelty is originality

in these circumstances it is difficult to avoid

the conclusion that western man has decided to abolish himself.

Creating his own boredom out of his own affluence

his own vulnerability out of his own strength,

his own impotence out of his erotomania.

Himself blowing the trumpet that brings the walls of his own city tumble down.

Having convinced himself that he is too numerous,

he labours with pill and scalpel and syringe to make himself fewer.

Thereby delivering himself the sooner into the hands of his enemies

at last having educating himself into imbecility,

and polluted and drugged himself into stupefaction.

He keels over a weary and battered old brontosaurus and becomes extinct.
