Black Death

The Black Death.
Dead bodies everywhere,
the diseased rats squeaked
and ran off
to spread the plague
to more victims.
The bubonic plague
the Black Death they call it
sweating heavily,
spitting blood,
swelling, black bruises,
terrible odors
suffering, pain, and agony
and your loved ones watch
you die.
Racing across Europe
touching Asia and North Africa
destroying Mesopotamia, Syria, and Armenia
the plague roared on
killing everyone it passed
murdering one in three people
with no mercy
no cure
and no way to stop it.

The Black Death.
