Mass hysteria gurgles with laughter.
it laps and licks the nectar of our fears,
but the sweetest fruit bears the most potent poison.
It’s insides are rotten, fed on gluttony and misinformation,
it becomes grotesque.
Terrified onlookers weep in dismay
and cry out in confusion.
“Was it not us in the West that championed ourselves as the keepers of law and order…
Why is this happening to us…?”
We don’t understand…
It was a ******* virus…
Why is it over here…
Please, answer us?”
Mass hysteria tosses and turns its ugly head
and shrieks in a cacophony of voices,
“Toilet paper, we are running out of toilet paper!”.
