Secrets shared

From misheard statements

Creating false beliefs

That spread

Like an illness

Crushing ecosystems

And organisms

Standing in its path

Hoping to create a barrier

To save society

But the illness grows


And swallows it whole.

  2. its an illness alright! one I get pulled into each day I work…that I have to struggle to ignore, walk away from, yet I find myself joining in at some point, sick with regret later on…..nicely done!
