the invisible global ghoul ghosting from coast to coast hounding down human for food like a hungry hyena lurking around for its prey you sprang from an Asian wild clawed at the lean-skin economy of my beloved country locking it down beyond its strength ripped into bits for a meal to be eaten by your cubs as hyperinflation hunger and abject poverty hope-wrenching unemployment and bloodthirsty insecurity as no one knows the trail trodden by you so is no one in the know of how to track you down and taming is as twice the task of tracking we all are affected by her demise with shivering shocks running through the veins of our common hope and fate is the bitter pill we all must swallow with patience to ease collective pains
