Just a flu?

Is this just a flu?
Is this just something new?
Is this just an over-calculation,
pumped out by algorithms & designed by machine men who've lost their spark...or who think your spark doesn't count?

Is this just a virus?
Is this just an incident of nature?
Is this just the actions of the few to dictate the new behaviors of the many; an opportunity to write a new social contract?

Is this just Karma?
Is this just prophetic prediction?
Is this just the playing out of storylines, written in shadow and performed right under my nose?

Is this just the beginning of a war?
Is this just a purge?
Is this just natural selection reaching a zenith as it removes any excess baggage,
Burning fields and making way for something new?

Is this just all in my mind?
Is this some kind of cosmic joke?
Is this just me vs you and nothing more than mirrors and smoke?
