Quarantine (Poem)

filtering its way through my veins
it’s slowly draining my life away
a positive strain has taken hold
selecting a new victim from the fold
they continue herding us around like sheep
keeping us afraid of catching the damn disease

please stay away, I think I’m contagious
didn’t know DNA could be so dangerous
I’m not waiting for someone to save us
not when everyone thinks we’re contagious

straining to survive by staying awake
I’m finding it harder each passing day
my cells are losing the fight for control
how can I be so young and still feel this old
deep down I know I just need some sleep
I don’t want this to be the death of me

please stay away, I think I’m contagious
didn’t know DNA could be so dangerous
I’m not waiting for someone to save us
not when everyone thinks we’re contagious

this is a self-inflicted quarantine
I’ve got to stop this from spreading
this is a self-inflicted quarantine
I don’t think you want my disease
