Contagion

The truly deadly pandemic

is the constant mention of the fact.

People falling prey

to the media’s poise and tact.

Worry and fear sell the story

of instability and prose.

Tune in for consternation.

Your life, now decomposed.

 

Talk about a plague!?

It’s right here, everyday.

In the headlines, in the blogs,

in the words that many say.

Have a cup of trepidation.

Drink up, it’s getting cold.

You pay dearly for scare tactics,

and the virus they have sold.

 

Is it really any different

than the usual way you go?

Thrown about by the raging riptide…

Isn’t that the world you know?

Flood your head with their poison;

feed the feeble self.

The fear our media is rendering

is compromising health.
