It spreads like a heavy blanket of fog,
From one to another; unsuspecting. 
Creeping along busy walkways
And rushing into crowded bars.
The morning news finally alerts the world.
A threat we have never known.
Globally it multiplies and permeates every city and village.
It slithers onto country roads, cobblestones,
And rocky trails alike.
Its becoming a monster!
"Stay in...lock your doors."
While defiant ones respond,
"Never mind...It's a lie!
It will never touch me."
Who will cover their face in compliance?
Who will wash and sanitize in the midst
of ridicule and contempt?

I pity the minority who won't
And praise the ones who will.
They don't have to wonder if the threat is real. 
They see the numbers exploding and conclude,
This is not a joke!
