Poetry – Disaster


The virus to spreading

                Out of control.

There is no antidote,

No vaccine.

It kills everything in its path.

Never has such

                A virulent strain

Mutated into existence;

                So lethal,

                So deadly,

So destructive to everything.

Never has a virus

                Threatened so many

Forcing extinctions


                To end

All life on the planet.

It is us.

It is us.

We are the sixth.

I'd like to hear from you...
