Ebola Spreads To Mali

The news on the Ebola front is not going to allay the alarm
That this disease is spreading, sowing its fatal harm
The brave doctor who went back to Africa to Ebola victims treat
Despite the best care in the U.S., his doctors had to admit defeat
Now a new cluster in Mali has just reared its deadly head
Like Dallas Presbyterian a blown diagnosis and three maybe five are now Ebola dead
It’s catch up time in Mali to discover who the contacts of the victims were to isolate
Mali must move quickly or many more will share the first few victims’ fate
On the home front at least without debate the U.S. acted with all due speed
Mali joins the list of West Africa countries if visited a 21 day quarantine an arrival must heed.
Mali is engaged in jihadist unrest and 21 wounded UN Peacekeepers were at the clinic where the first death occurred
Now in quarantine and a reminder for us to ask what steps for our soon to arrive troops will be taken to their safety insure?
