News bounces from radio against wall,
Heard new variant, flew in from Nepal.
In same way there’s a grey zone of warfare
Could it be there is a grey zone of health?
That space in between peace and declared war,
Where arms manufacturers operate,
Sales executives occupy high ground,
Set up stalls at fairs to pimp deterrence.
After all, nobody wants to start war,
This is ,they say, what weaponry is for.
Maintain status quo in honest regimes,
Shore up capitalist edifaces
Against concepts of democratic change.
Grey zone newspeak infects global research.
