Why does it come so from the rear

with footsteps we can never hear.

We think we’re doing Oh so well;

behind us grows a living hell.

‘Nefarious’ that is its name,

destroying lives that is its game.

It builds up right behind our hearts

and then the spread of tendrils starts

infecting body, mind and soul

until we feel we can’t be whole.

And then it squeezes; holding tight

enjoying it when we do fight

because it knows that in this war

our very fight just builds it more.

So learn to meet stress day to day

and block Nefarious’ way.

About a foolhardy florilegium

Nullius addictus iurare in verba magistri, quo me cumque rapit tempestas, deferor hospes.
