Poison

Is not just a
Bottle filled with liquid
Used for murder
Or assassination
Or revenge
Is not just
A toxic concoction
Made for bringing down one’s enemies
Is not just
A method of cheating
Of ending the game
Is not just
A drug to be messed around with
An experimental game
Used for entertainment
It’s a discreet evil
That spreads throughout society
Seeping through innocence
It’s toxicity
That can’t be held back
It’s a virus
That no wall can contain
That no being is immune to
It’s a monstrous evil
Silent
And massive
It may be
The perfect weapon
The perfect downfall
The perfect death
It may be
“No violence,”
It may be found in a container
But nothing can contain it
