The Disease has spread.
Spread to the hearts of those who know no better.
Running in our veins.
It’s effects hurt the vulnerable.
It’s the reason for war,
the reason for poverty.
For hunger and inequality.
It causes fear and prosperity,
wealth and security.
It is an illness what has progressed so far that it can no longer recognize itself.
An illness which has caused discretion, disparity, imbalance.
This is a word I once thought was good –
Associating it with a laugh or a smile.
But the disease has spread
