Total War

by STEW ALBERT

Viruses are permanently at war
with technology,
they take hits and major casualties
and mourn their millions dead
and plot revenge.

The soldiers of disease
grow tough from combat
they devise new tactics
and find willing
revenging recruits.

Technology grows
over confident
over reaching
assuming victory is forever,
that their opponents are stupid
and unlearning

It happens one night
in a distant land,
someone dies,
no one knows why
and what to do.

It happens one night in Hong Kong
and again in Toronto
lots of people just die
and the unbeatable god like weapons
of master science
rust in the waiting rooms
of guerilla war and death.

STEW ALBERT runs the Yippie Reading Room site.
