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.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
