Trio of death are doubt, fear, and gloom,
Where faith, success, and certainty find no room;
‘Tis almost better to err than to despair —
Better still both truth and zeal to share.
The photo above captures some viruses, which I assume can be deadly, like the trio described in the quatrain. Dunno for sure about the viruses, since I didn’t stay around long enough to read up. Just grabbed the image.
I do know how deadly the quatrain’s trio can be.
