Under Siege

An invisible assailant;

Peripatetic and pervasive,

Undefeated even by the valiant.

The world in which we live

Under siege an alien agent

Stealing liberties, and nothing to give

But furtive venomous ailment…

An intruder — incorrigible & unelusive…

Fleeting calamity or an

inevitable apocalypse?
