You attack both the young and old

You torment both the youth and the bald

Ever since you errupted from nowhere

Claiming lives like chickens on Christmas’day

Mankind has had to worry about its existence

Why are you this ruthless?

You a strain that heeds no concoction

Now hunger stricken children everywhere

Their parents prematurely nipped from the bud

You attack both the holy and the sinners

You go about with your merciless dagger

Taking breath from both the rich and poor

Some say you were sent from up above

As a repercussion for our charcoal black hearts

While some say you are man-made

By the greedy few profiting secretly as you ravage

Why don’t you leave us for a second?

So we can mourn in peace

Unworried about who your next victim will be
