Midnight Disease

Some people swore
In their mean time
Forget those people
People can eat me
My fellow mastoids
Bright digits pulsing
Our zeitgeist morphs
Our ghosts are bacteria
New strains of Ebola
Old necrotizing fasciitis
Contemporary nightshades
Immune system destroyers
Enter as haunted whispers
Penetrating each cell wall
The new founding fathers
The undiscovered country
Ravaged by blunt understanding
Ravaged beyond our repair
