At My Door - Poem by Francie Lynch

A cancer's spreading
Through our core,
With tendrils reaching
Every shore;
A virus leaping firewalls,
A sickness too apalling;
Advancing by some sick allure.

No use in praying for a cure,
Its saviour is a saboteur;
No vaccine can kill its spore.
Its mucous is racist;
Its nucleus is sexist;
Its atoms are prejudiced;
Its carriers are bigots;
And it's hungering for more;
It's at my front door.
