  • Contagion

    Clean smile, dirty face
    Moving around
    In amongst us
    Get close to everyone
    Converse your words
    Like it's all the usual
    Although it's not a normal day

    Look to me
    But did you look at yourself
    Before you came out?
    I see an obvious mark
    And it foretells a disaster
    You may think you're still human
    Like in any other day
    But in this sudden twist of reality
    You are a walking disease

    You then admit
    That there's something wrong
    But why waste your time
    When you could've just stayed home?
    My anxiety grows
    And so does the mark on your face
    Don't get close to us
    Don't kill your greatest lover
    Take the time to realise the risk
    You'd put us all in
    So crawl back into your hole
    Stay in quarantine

    You may still be someone
    But you've become
    Something else
    You may still be my friend
    But you've become
    Something that I despise

    Even if you are free from the sickness
    Let that be a lesson to you
    Even if you are free from the disease
    My perception of you has changed

    I won't forgive someone that ends up hurting
    Even if it's you
    I won't forgive someone that ends up killing
    Even if it's you

    Based on a school experience where someone I know had cut about the school despite having impetigo (and would've put me and many others at risk, yet she kept apart from her boyfriend at the time). That would be like me cutting about normally despite having chickenpox (to which thankfully was averted, as I was sent immediately back home when it was soon discovered one day at primary school).
