Musings of a scholar

How dare you creep in steadily

Giving no inkling to your presence

Fooling us with vague signs

Cryptic messages you give physicians

No one senses you

Not even your doomed host

Until you take off your mask

To reveal a face of death

Leaving a wreck in your wake


So you enjoy besieging futures

Sabotaging relationships

Causing endless pain and suffering

Causing agitation and restlessness

Taking them on a journey

Lengthy and tumultuous for some

Sad but mercifully brief for others

All roads leading to mortality

The end of a unique life


Know this

To get ahead of you

Is now my life’s work
