Pestilence, Plague and Blame

The plague doesn't come flying atop a beast
Spreading its death
The plague doesn't arise from our misery
Eating our flesh
It is a symptom of humanity
To blame that
Which it cannot see
The plague exists
Because of me
My diet
My waste
My pursuits of pleasure
My tastes
I am the cause
So are you
But we blame others
To avoid the truth
