Of Social Infection...


I am shivering cold
by chemical means,
by congenital state,
through genetic root,
that one might toe-tag
as socially expired
in cultural terms, of course.
Still, that does little
for they who have been
unblessed to witness
and feel the ice
that lay in my veins,
C R A C K L I N G.........

Who am I, you ask?
I smirk, lips pressed...
I am all, no less
than my mindworks permit
in conditions prevailing afront me,
revealing my hemispheres
wrapping my thoughts for the day...
in iron-clad gray,
so my toxic, socialized poison
doesen't break its bloody dam,
pour its neurological lava
'pon your sweet, warm aura,
and scald your young flesh
to ashen-char black.
Ssshhhh...No sense of taking to panic...uh-uh.

I am Social Infection, and
I want to see you
writhing in my tomb,
so keep on doing
all you've been doing-
war on, curse peace,
make bias your faith;
it's your world....
'Make My Day'!

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?

To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
