The Centers cannot hold

       
Secretly engineered in wing opposite of Prevention        
a communicable that could never be Control-led        
99.4% likelihood of fatality        
the Centers for Disease cannot hold        
       
Judge, jury, executioner in unnatural selection        
Now rampant ruthless, once most common'ly cold        
Sweeping through populace, normal flu we're told        
the Centers for Disease cannot hold        
       
Widening in gyre scope, eradicating hope        
in takedown of anyone from President to Pope!          
       
Are we being Raptured? Inevitably to be captured        
and crucified by the Dark Man? The Monster is coming        
THE MONSTER IS COMING! A Walking Dude! Some thing        
straight out of nightmares and dreamscapes        
taking on shifting shapes --- a raven or a demon        
Whatever the case, he'll turn the world on its face        
further purging Humanity from the Human race;        
finishing the job we already started with Christ        
our dearly departed Saviour who's not so keen        
on coming back for Seconds at this last supper        
of an upper respiratory tract infection story        
where next up on Nadine's cross is Mother Abigail
