Silent Killer

Location

 

Children writhe in agony

Mothers, fathers weep hysterically

Misery abounds

Villages frothing with violence

The worst has just begun

 

Confusion

Weakness

Breath quickens

Paralysis

Convulsions

 

Symptoms appearing upon seconds

A silent killer at work

 

Armies occupy schools

Children occupy hospitals

1429 dead

A country has turned on its citizens

 

Faith shattered

Trust broken

Hope lost
