There is no known antidote for this poison.

A vile concoction of words

poured from a chalice with intent to destroy the spirit.

The only cure is to immerse yourself in the venom and let it flow through your veins.

Let the words puncture your skin.

Then return to the beginning.

Find that place in your heart that contains all the toxic waste.

Then shine a light of love on those words and watch as the poison drains away.
