Look Out… It’s Catchy!

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

There is an ailment that can spread
Like wildfire does.
It can’t be stopped by shots or masks,
Or even rubber gloves.
It leaves its victims suffering
From headaches and fatigue;
An upset stomach sometimes comes,
And wrinkles set in deep.
It’s not uncommon, if unchecked,
To quickly lay aside
Entire families, in its wake;
For there’s no place to hide.
It’s far more catchy that the mumps,
Or chickenpox, or flu.
“What is this ailment?” you may ask.
It’s called a Rotten Mood.
“A soft answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.”
Proverbs 15:1 NKJV
