Some thoughts on viruses

Virulence

Exploding into existence as quickly as it multiplies

The great antagonist to eukaryotic life,

Destroying everything in its path.

Reeking havoc, changing behaviours, and jumping from host to host

Perfectly adapted to infect, divide, and survive

The best one’s won’t kill you, they won’t even make you that ill

They want you to go out, meet people. To socialise

Because it is here they can do their best work

Forcing a cough from your throat and dancing through a hailstorm of air particles

Indiscriminately invading the throat lining of others

Until there’s nobody left to infect

When everybody has gone who has won?

No homes for the virus whilst our home lies dormant

Until...

New life,

And with it; new virus. Hand in hand, never one without the other.

The arms race continues.
