The superfluous molecules that God made were all combined into elements which in turn made a beautiful but poisonous planet.

In fact, this ball in space is a mother.

Once flat, she fattened up.


The white man fed her black souls: the flavor of the land.

The only color found was in nature; the rest was black and white.

Amid the feuds between humanity, the unborn generation arose with mixed mentalities in the wombs of their Mother Earth.

Now those superfluous molecules are lost in the minds of very few disciples of the moon.
