Germs In The Mix

 

As if the threat of World War 3

wasn’t quite enough,

there’s a new string to it,

that really is so tough.

For not only is there nuclear threat

in the shape of those big bombs,

but germ warfare is now in the mix

threatened with some maniac’s aplomb.

There’s talk of bringing back the plague,

or anthrax with it’s holes,

botulism’s mentioned

as part of this germ warfare’s goals.

Maybe it’s scaremongering,

some news that’s really fake;

a media dreamt up story

is what I hope for the world’s sake.

Yeah, count on the media to scare the shit out of us--a fine poem, Hully!

I just can't help worrying that there maybe at least some truth to the story....perhaps they'll unleash the common cold!
Thanks for reading my paranoid ramblings.

A very fine poem, I must agree with Mike. Well done.
