Create this horrid thought within your mind,
if only to expressly discourse hate,
Create a world in which a new mankind
does live upon an Earth they cultivate.

The men of past are long forgotten tales.
The ideas of these men have since run out.
A new race is required to prevail;
they subjugate the ways of human doubt.

So never shall there be another man
to want and lust to know his worthless coin.
Upon the back of glory rides a clan
of a new race of knowledge born to join.

So in this new created world we tell
that greed is where the human demise dwells.

As a note, lust is used to mean desire in any sense, not just sexual; mainly greed and such.

Basically this sonnet is about a thought experiment in which we imagine a new race of intelligent beings which is free from the lust, greed, and desire of humanity. It discusses how such a race would simply regard us as historical rhetoric and only the beginning of real advancements. We would soon die out or be forced into slavery as these rationally superior animals would overthrow us.
