Lead

Lead is toxic.

A friend declared that the year 2018 is lead.

Lead is a neurotoxin
Toxin that damages nerves
Nerves causing disorders
Disorders of blood
Blood and brain
Brain and body affected
Affected like trauma
Trauma feels like lead
Lead that maims
Maims and maybe kills
Kills life’s joys
Joys turned to sorrows
Sorrows that are heavy
Heavy, lead
