The Beating Body

Cellular Intelligence

Everyone is talking about covid nineteen.
It’s a topic of interest, so I will too.
What I know of the damned thing is not very much.
Complicated descriptions my mind cannot touch.
I am astounded by what viruses can do.
It seems like they are consciousness and a machine.

We don’t care about origin as we once did.
We’ve skyrocketed past that. The world in crisis
Is concerned with immunity and transmission
And a war between them and us now has begun.
Accusations of where it came from we dismiss
Lest we enter places that heaven would forbid.

Yet there is some hell present, but not all that much,
In the form of protesters of God only knows.
To drink pee or drink Clorox is not a fair choice.
Do you nut cases out there deserve a free voice?
Those who want to remain healthy strongly oppose
Outrageous demonstrations of drama and such.

The body has its own ways of fighting disease
Its defenses are elegant. Yet as a whole
Humankind is susceptible to invasion.
The virus knows its enemy has next to none
Of the virtue come vital in saving its soul.
In this experience there’s a lesson to seize.

The Future Post Virus

Toward A Newer Normal

Microorganisms other than us are we,
And few cells truly are ours. The process of birth
Blesses newborns with bacteria and good germs.
They add to the new person, in most certain terms,
Symbiotic survival while here on this earth.
This relationship satisfies both completely.

Until death do us part, my acquired cells and those
Of my own are the dynamic duo that keeps
Me alive and performing at my very best.
I feel certain imbalance whenever I’m stressed.
It is best that I honor these feeling receipts.
Surely if I ignored them I would welcome woes.

We’ve been in a pandemic. There isn’t a soul
Who knows not this true fact due to technology.
So, it does get inflated, and more of us die.
Yet it’s of grave importance. We cannot deny
Proper communication. Eventually
An effective solution helps us reach our goal.

But vaccines are like old jokes to sharp viruses.
One word changed in the punchline will make them mutate.
Earth has formed neural networks. All life plays a part.
When the brain of the planet discovers its heart,
Dysbiosis will cease, then nature can create
Maximum diversity to cure weaknesses.
