Man's Utilisation of Gifts

God gave man the power to speak,
Man used it to make the world a place bleak.

God gave man the power to write,
Man used it to chain all tight.

God gave man the power to think,
Man used it to make his brethren sink.

God gave man intelligence,
But with it man built a fence.

God gave man life,
Alas! Man used it to strip others’ with a knife.
