A couple of people were sniffing around the answer, but I think I was overzealous in obfuscating it. No vampires or spiders; the antibiotic suggestion was an interesting fit though.

So here's an earlier draft that had more clues. I promise to explain the metaphors I had in mind after it's solved.

Viper, slither 'cross the plains
Find your mark and sink your fangs
Summon spirits armed to kill
Bind them to my heinous will

You've seen your final living day
Now to your tomb, I'll light the way
You won't reach heaven, I'll be terse:
This land of milk and honey's cursed!

The blood that courses through my veins,
Bewitched, it is. Corrupt! Profane!
My icy touch will leave you numb
Be sure, my Gods bring worse to come

Prepare to face the hellish flames
As pitchforks stab, play twisted games
If you face them, yet persist
You'll soon return into my midst

Seeing if this has to do with the fact that I'm a structural biologist?
Nah, nothing work related here. No mad cows, just your everyday stuff. But frostbite, you say?

And with that last stab, Shakeepuddn slays the evil beast!
In case a re-read of the riddle when you know the answer doesn't bring the metaphors to life, here's what I had in mind when writing it

Spoiler for Hopefully you find the sinister descriptions of something so benign as amusing as I did

I'm not sure how to rate it. I like it but it pissed me off. I had considered that line much earlier but I just couldn't fit the viper slithering and fangs part or summoning spirits, the latter which totally flew o'er head. To me "it" would summon life, function, not death. Well, sure "sparked" some traffic and brainbusting . . and I guess that's a big plus. I give it four just cause I like tough riddles and because I'm still enamored of your honey bees!
Cheers

Haha. Yes, guesses from a fellow biologist.

Interesting answer. :thumbsup:
