[ Stephen King inspired ] Death To The Living

 
God's breath  
gift of life that keeps on giving  
is a pilot light in the night  
that can easily be blown out
 

 
Forget the only life you've known  
Your knowledge is for naught  
No slowly Creeping Death am I;  
just a fucking juggernaut  
 
Infecting unbeliever and devout  
the strain of superflu you've caught  
weaponized ill meant to kill  
with little borrowed time bought  
 
Will to live? In vain  
Oh, how valiantly you fought  
Your efforts to remain  
a viable species  
all for    
NAUGHT  
 
 
Ecstasy  
the epiphanies of your agony  
 
as cateracted eyes begin to bleed  
from impacted sockets atrophied  
 
Pussed pockets of flesh erupt  
with bursting rather abrupt  
 
Inside, organs liquefied  
Spine, a collapsed poisoned weed  
 
Thirsting  
 
Fever upped  
to one hundred six degrees  
and climbing  
 
Death toll continues climbing  
 
No reasoning to the rhyming  
Sing it with me now  
 
Spreading the disease  
Spreading the disease  
Kiss goodbye your loved ones  
The end of the world is near  
Spreading the disease  
Spreading the disease  
Tell your friends and family dear  
that Captain Trips was here  
NAUGHT  
NAUGHT  
Humanity's struggle to stay alive  
all for  
N  A  U  G  H  T
