by Nevada Kerr

Something's surely coming
Something's in the wind
I can hear the humming
I can feel them closing in

Looming in the distance
Uglier than sin
Completely drug resistant
Determined to get in

Sticky and insistent
Hungry for revenge
But avoiding confrontation
Till they're underneath our skin

The first mistake we made
Was killing off the worm
They were wingless in the early stage
Too weak to pass the germ

But when they started molting
Unbound and reborn
A virus was evolving
Feeding as they spawned
