Hymn to Ebola

15 Oct

Oh Great Ravisher!

Turning my own body against me

Nature’s own terrorist

The worst humanitarian disaster of modern times

or so Ebola would have us believe

The spilling of blood leads to more spilling of blood

Why can’t we ever understand?

Ebola is the natural result of

an Endless Rampage

To have Ebola is to run amok

until whole nations are nations of zombies

or so Ebola would have us believe

Oh Great Deceiver!

Although my body has been destroyed

Yet I live!

In ways that a terrorist contagion can never defeat

My spirit cannot be contained

In blood

Your efforts, Oh Great Monster!

are in vain
