Unmentionable. A poem by Mark Burrow

Unmentionable the origins
Of past/present/future
Epidemics or pandemics
Or any other unmentionable

Theories including animals
Or unmentionable
Laboratories in countries
We dare not mention.

Unmentionable the crashed
Aircraft somewhere
Geographically near
Western Asia, the Middle East,

Or other unmentionable
Do not mention any form
Of religious holiday,

Celebration, conflict,
Appearance, outfit,
Body language,

Everything mentioned above
Is all unmentionable.
