Bubonic Plague on the Subway System

By M. Parks

It’s the American way
There is always
A new disease
A new war
The Devil is lurking
Around every corner
What will they find next?
Kittens carry ebola?
Chocolate causes infidelity?
Your commute to work
Will make you blind
Clam down
Be alive!
Tonights headline
You’re Gonna Die
So hide your children
Barricade your home
Buy everything
That your fear sells you
Because we have your comfort
On clearance
