You are the virus

Settle into semblance of order
or something that passes
Incomplete, but enough
to play the charade

Darwin looms large
in reflexive response
Seeking gratification
they find a spigot run dry

Another tempest brewing
in this teapot we call home
Short attention span theater
loose wire to find a fault

Psychic gods deny us
understanding of what we fear
Subliminal image
on flat screen TV

I am the virus
I am the virus
I am the virus
