Sorry folks for the rant of sorts, as I am getting VERY TIRED of reading how everything and anything seems to be a contributing factor in the end of mans reign on Earth...e

Already I am reading of pandemic worries,

The 5th estate, our wonderful media, started pushing it,

Sure in Mexico a greater number of people did pass,

But isn’t it more so there because the medico’s have less class,

More likely we'd be to see in mid-summer snow flurries...


They don’t have the drugs available to them,

That the larger more advanced countries have,

And for the most part so far,

Symptoms here have yet to be up to their par…


But to regress, the media is already talking world destruction,

From this version of the flu’ introduction,

Maybe we should hide in our beds, with Lysol spray at the ready,

Wear face masks to breathe through & rubber gloves,

To keep us from maybe getting dead(y)…


I am so tired of hearing the media blow things out of proportion,

And for the most part it seems that the news turns out to be distortion…

"This lil Piggy went to Market,
this lil Piggy stayed Home,
this lil Piggy was Rotten,
and gave everybody the FLU ...

If the Wolf huffs n' puffs -
he's probably got the SWINE FLU ...
from eatin' Lil Piggies!

Does the word PANDEMONIUM come from PANDEMIC?
or Vice Versa ?

Might want to avoid Bacon and Ham Sammiches for awhile?

Finally - a MASK on you would certainly help - The REST of the WORLD!

Fear is the greater enemy, what you fear you attract and manifest...better to think healthy thoughts that you are safe...It actually works :)

Don't panic, but take this seriously! So well I remember the Asian Flu that came into Texas (San Antonio), and ironicly from San Diego. Nearly 70,000 deaths in U.S., and nearly got me; 45+ days in hospital. No flu shots then, as no flu shots for swine flu, now. From San Diego to Dallas earlier this week, and thank God for the alertness of our media and medical investigators in this area. Just take precautions...Don't worry, Ed, I'm not travelling anywhere :o)

Now why didn't I think of that? I guess I'm too excitable. Or maybe Bill just has too much news on tv. I'm brainwashed! You're probably right, Ed. After all, we're just coming out of a very cold global warming winter.
I love your word "dead(y)" Ok if I borrow it sometime?
