We stood no better chance at survival then those of the trailer Park on the edge
of the ghetto .
This all understood ,,, only those of greatest vanity ,, shivered with the fear of it .
just as the stone I walked upon , I too , would have not concern over the effects of the virus .
For to my mind , the end was always right at my door , simply waiting for me to
mistakenly open it .
No man of steel am I , pragmatic to a fault no less , is all .
Fear was a child's affliction , not a staple of mine since puberty .
The cringe of the spine would not enter my being ,,,
I was too far past those childish imaginings at this juncture in life .
I detested the company that I was surrounded by at the moment , for here were people of extreme aggression toward creating wealth ,, yet as mice when facing their own demise .
Once Smug, intimidating , and callous of others in business and prowess in financial affairs ,,
Ah hell , sick they made me to my stomach now .
they tremble , where only a child would .
" Ebola ? I mused , what is it , something you cannot send a team of thugs
to squash this time ?
Generals of high ranking ,, cowards when they find death cannot be dealt via their Drones .
I await the finality of my own story line with the grace of a Knight , should a man decree his final fate with any other attitude ? I believe not .
We , none of us , can be so asinine as to believe we came into this World for a permanent stay ,,, yet when the end steps forward to collect our time card ,,, pity how the weak of soul ,,, bend at the knees and pray " Not I ,,, Not yet please "
Yes , misfortune it is to meet death by one you cannot have personal battle with ,,
to meet the end by a virus ,, which a man cannot take fair challenge with in combat
Yes , it is not comforting to know , that you are going down and cannot at the least , deliver the slightest of wound unto the assailant ,,, for a warrior ,, this is disgraceful .
I fear not death as much as I disdain meeting it without a chance to engage it in battle .
The Sheep of this flock , run for the comfort of numbers , they seek their brethren
in mass , as if numbers are stronger than the disease and shall save their hides .
There is no honor where fear lives .
