Distress

 a poem by Joshua Brown


When I watch your actions

Obtuse and pained

I see myself wasting away

In vanity and pride


The people of the valley

Both soul and empty brain

In darkness seek their vision

White paper blotted stain

 

Give us bread They snort

With desperation clear

Out with the comforts!

Just ignoring the fear

 

The virus is potent

Here and there alive

Inside their zombie carcass

They will not ever die.
