Blight of hate

Sparing none, It spread far and wide, Embracing its victims with a death's grip An ominous cloud traveling worldwide Gathering force for it was not yet done Finding no cure, Black pools of infection drown cells, No immune system could wage it's contagion Dark days to seek a God wherever He dwells For its past an epidemic threshold no one can endure Agonizing uncertainty, Suspicious thought of who is next, We mourn as our comrades succumb to the scourge Echo of anguish as we are sucked into the vortex Waiting in terror grasping to a life without guarantee It ravages on, A pandemic pandemonium, A plague rivaling the black death Moribund,we implore love to remedy this bacterium As cancerous hate threatens to efface the light of dawn

Fantastic verse! So well done. It's a shame there are so many reads and no comments. Crude and mightily rude. I read plenty of no brainer Poetry here that is drooled over. Yours is deep And intelligent. I tell you, you are one of the best here. I apologize for all who did not. You deserve recognition, really, Someone had to say this! Panagiota xo
