Going Viral


In this era, of swashbuckling viruses,
Zika, HIV, influenza and Dengue,
There is yet another fighter going viral, 
To where no man has ever
Been before, the throngs of eyes
That become educated of the existence
Of a life form, that shares the same prefix “Self”
As selfish, and reproduces profusely,
Showing how easy it is, to enter a nucleus,
And to make a copy of its nucleic acids,
What is enveloped by the capsid
Of skin and costume, prospering
As a contagion, of how simple and easy it is,
To proliferate through the lungs,
Of an electronic network, slipping through
Network windpipes, like
A bout of the common cold.
