Saturday Speech Choir Practice (Reverse Creation)


wew.. I'm so tired practicing for this speech choir
I love this piece its so true.

Here's a copy of it.

Reverse Creation
by: Bernard Backman

In the end, man destroyed the heaven called earth.
The earth had been beautiful until the spirit of man moved
over it and destroyed all things.

And man said…
Let there be darkness…& there was darkness
And man liked the darkness; so he called it “SECURITY”
And he divided himself into races & religious & classes of society
………And there was no evening & no morning on the seventh day
before end.

And man said…
Let there be strong government to control us in our
darkness
Let there be armies to control our bodies, so that we may learn to kill one another neatly & efficiently in our darkness
………And there was no evening & no morning on the sixth day
before end.

And man said…
Let there be rockets & bombs to kill faster & easier
Let there be gas chambers & furnaces to be more
thorough
………And there was no evening & no morning on the fifth day
before end.

And man said…
Let there be drugs & other forms of escape for there is this constant annoyance…reality which is disturbing our comfort
………And there was no morning & evening on the fourth day before end.

And man said…
Let there be division among nations, so that we may know who is our common enemy
………And there was no morning & no evening on the third day before end.

And finally, man said…
Let us say that GOD thinks…as we think hate…& kill.
………And there was no morning & evening on the second day before end.

On the last day, there was a great noise on the base of the earth
Fire consumed the beautiful globe, & there was SILENCE
The blackened earth now rested to worship the one true GOD
And GOD all men had done…& in the silence, over the smoldering ruins…HE WEPT.
