Today's poem is by Donald Markos

Things To Look Forward To
       

We shall send new things to plague you—
fire ants, "aids," tiger bees.

Do what you will to each other
but we will not forget you.

We are making new mutants, new
mutants all the time

and only most of them
expire.

Evolve your own symptoms as you wilt
we remain your loyal opposition.
