Journey of a Plague


Another plague to haunt today,
Add the casualties, it's here to stay.
Solace me now, you kind fresh fool
You shall surely be the contagion's next tool.

Humans fall prey to each other's links
While disease surpasses our bodily brink.
Epidemic breaks out and collects like a hoarder,
Forcing the healers to restore healthy order.

Remedies come forth, paying us salvation.
Withering the curse, relieving it's nation.
Comfort will shortly stay, for we are doors
Opening up and welcoming anatomy's next wars.
