[ CC ] [ SK ] 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
