hubris and stupidity

the old black death
it comes running
it comes riding
again and again
through the villages
and the great cities
trailing pride in its wake,
and everyone comes ’round
to lean in close
and admire their own bravery

while the devil watches them go
disciples each and every one
spreading pestilence like seeds
carried in a rotting sack
stitched of hubris and stupidity
