The Snake Is In America
The venomous snake
slipped past our dusty defenses
While we sit vulnerable, exposed to the elements we invoked
Targeted for our lack of readiness
There is no one to call.
There is no one to rescue us.
We had heard the warning calls with cotton in our ears
Too busy to be bothered
A problem in China is not our problem
A problem in Italy is not our problem
But now struck, bitten by it's fangs we cry out for help, and no help arrives
When you believe doctors are useless and scientists are charlatans
You have no one left to believe but the echo chamber you live in
No one left to trust but yourself, and truth be told no one trusts themselves.
We are free falling, poisoned, isolated, alone
The snake is spreading
And there is no antidote
