    RUINATION
    -----------

    Stacked bodies void of soul

    Devastation on the whole

    Is God in it all or

    Too busy lovin' ya'll

    Third World

    Island girl

    Earthquake ~

    Rocked our world

    Bagmen gone rogue

    Save the babies

    Lost cause'

    Deadpan

    Be damned!

    But I digress...

    Motherless and clueless am I

    As to the cause of ruination

    "Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding: far be it from God, that he should do wickedness; and from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity. For the work of a man shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways. Yea, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment."

    when i first read this piece, my eyes played games on me and i thought you had titled the piece "ruminations" (reflections). was it a play on words? linking ruminations with ruin? very deep brother!

    i loved the one-word lines. very good choice of lyrics, and oh, how one word can carry so much meaning!
