Contagious - Poem by John Shea

I come for you
There is no escape
I am worse than evil defined
Your life I rape

I cover the world
There is no escape
Your demise I create

I crave your ending
Your beginning is mine
Be it viral or benign

My rule is final
Your fate is mine
I crave your ending

Beginning with life as you take your first breath
Introduced me to you
My name is death

My rule is final
Your fate is mine
I crave your ending
As you take your last breath

No vaccine can cure my wrath
Everyone walks my eventual path.
