EEE Virus in Mass. 3 Cases of Pneumonic Plague in Colorado

The world is not a sea of tranquility no matter what Ernest states
Now from a microbe standpoint we have something else to worry about on our plate
The triple E virus which by mosquitoes is spread
Has in Bridgewater, Mass. just reared its ugly head
This disease kills about a third who are infected
The survivors who area lucky enough to have death deflected
Are often left with severe and lasting mental loss
If now in Bridgewater time to lather up with the DEET sauce
From Colorado news of three cases of the deadly pneumonic plague from an infected dog
An ever reminder we may be the highest species but through the germs we must slog
Left untreated this plague kills almost one hundred percent
In 36 hour to the morgue the victim will be sent
If you see someone coughing a bad idea to share a toke
The virus lives quite well in marijuana smoke
Wonder in the land of recreational pot how many will be bitten but in a pot haze
Will ignore the signs of the disease because of their mental daze.
