mortality
Poison paranoia eating up the febrile mind-brain,
Random seizures like lightning strikes pummel the body,
Disconnected neurons torture in multiple sclerosis- a lottery of accidental suffering,
Paralysis pounds at the base of the spine, rendering legs useless,
Ataxia, ataxia, a fierce epidemic of ataxia,
Drool, drool from uncontrolled lips which twist words,
Cancer drags the tumour filled bodies to death,
Old bodies bent with a hump from the weight of the years,
And festering with decay and age,
Are crippled with bloating obesity, and choking arteries.
We are ephemeral like flowers in spring: we are gone in a month and broken in a moment.
