The Red Button

A human myself,
I would push the red button.
For having seen into man’s heart,
Brimming with evil.

Eliminating them now,
Preventing perhaps.
Unending sadness,
Shielding the unborn.
From humanity’s touch,
Painted with madness.

The red button,
Gleaming crimson.
Color of blood,
With great conviction,
Boldly proclaiming.
I could,
Ignite the destruction,
Of this species mutated.
The world exploding,
If I push the red button.
