THE PLAGUE

MERCY MAKERS, BLOOD SPILLERS, HEAD COLLECTORS,
ARE KEY FACTORS IN HIS WORK,

RUNNING AROUND DECAPITATING MEN & WOMEN AGING
PAST HALF A CENTURY,

CATCHING EVERY LAST BREATH THEY HAVE LEFT IN A JAR,
SO THEY CAN LISTEN TO THEIR SCREAMS,

WHILE HE GOES TO SLEEP, RIDING ALONGSIDE A RAGE HE RELEASES
EVERY HUNDRED YEARS, FROM HIS DARK DEPTH,

CAGE, TRAVELING LIKE MIST, CHOKING EVERYONE IN IT'S WAY
THE PLAGUE WILL DEVOUR A CITY IN HOURS, A STATE IN DAYS,

A COUNTRY JUST IN A WEEK, A WHOLE ENTIRE CONTINENT WITHIN A MONTH
