These are the genetic strategies of life,
Allowing us to cling to our very earthly existence.
Virus, one of the ubiquitous forms of life
Which constantly remind us of their existence--
Tenaciously meddling in our lives.
Our way of guiding evolution,
Preventing new viral forms
Which ravage our human population.
Is it faith in a god which will save us
Or a greater common understanding of our methods of science;
The latter leading us to rational knowledge
Of our ever-present fellow forms of life,
Which use us as a medium for their ceaseless subsistence?
Oh, deliver us from so unsavory a plight!
