Infection

Published by Victor Barr on

Without malignant intentions

expanding never ending always seeking

A host

A place to reproduce, to begin again

and again…

Unaware of the damage that it is wreaking

 

The host dies

and searching once more

To recreate itself,

it spreads

Cell to cell, faster, faster

Rebuilding the host,

infecting the core

 

Just a simple calculation, a mathematical equation

Double once, double again

Reproduction unchecked, spreading, changing,

faster, faster

It rapidly infects the population

 

Without intent, without knowing

Simple strands of RNA

has brought mankind to a halt

within our DNA

We will survive

our resistance growing

 

The host keeps distance in

                                        cellular isolation

reproduction checked, spreading stalling

slower, slower

it spares the greater population

 

a second occurrence, a new wave of reproduction

strands of RNA ever-changing

our DNA thrives in connection

will humanity stay strong

and unite in continued separation.

 

the wave keeps growing

spreading faster, 

                              farther

viral seed continue sewing

and overwhelm our institutions 

 

around the clock time keeps moving

and continue with more restriction

we search for a solution

Looking for the antigens worth proving

 

Warnings  real and fake engulf us all

If we don’t take the magical potion

We may suffer an even greater fall

we must join together

                                      separately

keeping everything in motion.

 

The greatest medical minds 

create the simplest strands of protien

to mimic the infestation

                             a recreation

to undo the tie that binds

 

It’s a way to free us from our situation.

still many protest against the solution

and push back against everything

driven by fear and misinformation.

 

So close to the end of the infection

a new disease arrises

one that has no easy cure

caused by disinformation.

 

Our world needs to join together

to push back against the fear

hold the line against darkness

and unite in love

                                forever.

Lovely poem … great description …
Keep writing.
Also thanks about sharing about your life.
Most lives turn out a bit different than imagined.
The important thing is to keep on living our life story the best we can, the way
we want it.
