A very tiny guest
Introduced to a very fine world
There havoc is rendered
Bit by bit
The defences are broken
Fort smashed down
And armoury set on fire
Its blaze continues overtime
Life made vulnerable
Only for adversaries to set in
Taking away the breath
Of the finest of all creatures
The old and the young
In knowledge and ignorance
Welcome this guest
One they never bid farewell
But its hands lead them
To the grave
When faithfulness in love
Caution in life
And its panacea mortals seek
Barred its coming.

« return.
