What bugs us is  we have to kill those
Who were sleeping with us dreaming
Of death,  its pre-eminence in bodies.

They were in bed with us like women,
Watched movies with us popping corn
Came with us riding on our taxi backs.

The bug has a life span of just 23 days.
A day or two less makes no difference.
Thank God we are back to our dreams.
