Unwelcomed intruders

By Lamar WigginsPublished 5 months ago Updated 5 months ago 1 min read

a microscopic invasion,

stealthily enters

the equation


dark blobs form immediately

destroying healthy bonds



unseen by the naked eye,

infiltrated systems go



mucous membranes; first defense

chest tightens, discomfort



thermometers climb,

inflamed chords, cold chills



an alien replicates unchecked,

one goal in mind —



science names the deadly strain,

can human life remain



eradication, sometimes…

origin of species



the infantry unleashes a storm,

healthy cells emerge;



the culprit remains to be seen,

I'd introduce them all to

a vaccine


from a top-secret lab or a meteorite,

aliens are hidden from us

out of sight...
