White-fleck havoc

In the whirling cavern

a wretched evil spread,

cloned itself in tiny pieces

and clung to black and red.


Its white-fleck havoc

singled out the dark,

multiplied its power

in every mocking mark.


Just a single tissue

colonised our clothes,

spread its spotty dandruff

everywhere it shows.


Whose the guilty pocket

or the culprit sleeve

from whence the viral paper

sought its mischief to achieve?


(No-one’s owning up!)
