Feast for Worms

gloves are striking

syringes are rioting

in the company of stethoscopes

white coats trailing them

demanding a better pay!




drugs can’t enter the veins

when the syringe is rioting

veins are dying

the grave is celebrating

and worms are feasting

when will this nightmare end?

it’s living long than Methuselah…
