Black Plague

June 1, 2012
All throughout Europe
Throughout all the towns
Amid sights and smells
And bustling sounds
A terrible monster is creeping unseen

Carried by rats
Carried by fleas
The horror spreads
And grows with ease
A monster for which there is no vaccine

Oozing boils and
Rotting flesh
Each hospital
A stinking mess
An impossibly hopeless disaster

And potions
We go through
The motions
But the sickness just spreads faster

The graves have been stuffed
‘Till they’re obsolete
The corpses fill houses
And litter the streets
Now nobody can pretend

We wonder who’s next,
And turn to traditions
For the fallen include
All our physicians
Never to be seen again
