Narcolepsy

Location

Everyone has it, no one thought it was contagious

Hordes of people stand with ignorance to the epidemic

Man, woman, child all murdered; it's egregious 

But are we not all sick?

 

For we must have narcolepsy

We have fallen asleep on our fellow man

No love, no hope, no mercy

Even genocide does not cause demand

 

Narcolepsy

Disaster-Katrina, we turn our heads

Narcolepsy

Children sleeping in anything but a bed

 

Benghazi, fighting, can't you see?

the world is blind to narcolepsy

we fall asleep 

for we are afraid of the deep

 

this thought is scarlet 

like the A on Prynne

now apparent is the epidemic

as our eyes dim

Narcolepsy
