Well said, Jack!
Brutal and pessimistic
You got it right. HATE!, If hate is part of our DNA then, certainly we are doomed. Through hate man will destroy man and take down the eart with it. Well done. Like Laz says 'hate is poison' and has an insatiable thirst to destry and if Humanity doesn't deal with it ASAP your end of the world scenario, is well on it's way.
I enjoyed your take on the end of the world. I agree wholeheartedly that it is we, the human beings, who have the power to make or break this planet. I do not believe in Raptures or higher powers having any influence on how we live our lives. We have the ultimate choice to do evil or live good lives....it is entirely up to us. Well done.
There is such irony in this short piece; a fitting entry that I believe meets the criteria of the contest, Onesky.
I particularly enjoyed your use of alliteration (stretching the definition of the term). Fertile, futile...very nicely stated. Also, "I will cut my way up corporate ladders and cut down..." Excellent!
Your ending rather surprised me. I saw Satan narrating, but...:)
Great job. My vote!
