IMMUNITY

Invisibility imperviousness

Waterproof invincibility

Extremes for extremes

A superhero life

All the battles fought

And won

Tiny wars raging

Armies billions strong

Every day

Pathogens and antigens

Proteins medics

Interventions

Reinforcements

Intensive passive

A bewildering

On the edge

Winner take all

Fight to the death

What’s the fascination

With perfection

Our imagination

Run amuck

Nothing is truly

Waterproof despite

What the guy on

TV says

No war is the one

To end them all

No solution final

It’s more a patch

Here and there

An extra layer of tape

Band aids of life

I just try to stay

Out of the crossfire

Long enough to

Get to bed

In one piece

To get a good enough

Nights sleep

For the next

Attack
