THE VIRUS

It spreads like panic

like scrambled eggs of toast

yellow peril is upon us

huawai no warning of the ghost

 

that haunts the cities, the volumes

of participants in global

balancing that shifts and looms

like a surgeon’s scalpel

 

Hack and cut, saw and pry

see the legs of civilisation

come away and much less spry

it limps on, dreading amputation
