A sudden sensation of fear,

Better wash it down with some beer.

It prevents reason and logical thinking,

Just don't forget about blinking

Feelings of anxiety and frantic agitation,

Hope you don't wake up in a cop station.

Consistent with an animalistic fight-or-flight reaction,

And trust me, there will be no satisfaction.

It may occur singularly in individuals,

And heavily mess with your visuals.

As well as manifest suddenly in large groups of peeps,

And then they all be acting like massive creeps.

The word derives from antiquity,

And it sometimes becomes an iniquity.

But it's a tribute to some greek god,

So be wary of the lightning rod

Remember that it's just an emotion,

So no need to drown yourself in an ocean.

Please, nobody panic,

You're off the titanic.
