With Boko Haram on a killing spree Nigeria is a dangerous place
Today even more frightening news of Ebola virus laying waste
In a world now flat with borders so easy to fly over and land
Ebola was on a flight from Liberia a disease we humans cannot withstand
West Africa is a cauldron for this sickness that almost always kills
There is no vaccine, there are no life saving pills
When will open up the news to hear someone with Ebola has stepped off a plane
Having infected passengers heading off to cities and town making it impossible the spread to contain
No outward signs of illness only enduring another lousy service flight.
Days later infected not knowing it and unable to withstand the viruses’ deadly might.
Serious stuff and one hopes the CDC has put its anthrax handling mess behind.
If not, this country and any nation accepting passengers from the area of infection could be in a real bind
