Silently you arrived just like a fox,
a twentieth century monster who never knocks.
You visit the young and old alike,
filling them with fear and anxiety about their plight.
Your tentacles are like sneaky spiders,
antagonizing loved ones, family and all insiders.
Even now you send chills up my spine,
as you will know this poem is written with you in mind.
Why do you come with such haste?
numbing the senses and eliminating taste.
Destroying that which God gives life,
causing havoc and misery to those who need no strife.
Life is too precious to ever bow down,
you will not win as science holds your crown.
