Carnival Magic Turned Away Due To Ebola Fears

The Carnival Magic is not the Love Boat but a ship of fears
Cutting short its cruise while passengers try to hold back their tears
Like the St. Louis of decades ago carrying Jews seeking from the Nazis to escape
Turned away from resort ports not willing to let possible Ebola on board escape
Back to Galveston with another hospital worker in his cabin now confined
Another case of sloppiness in Ebola protocol defined
One hopes that without symptoms a person cannot others infect
Abundance of caution as opposed to panic and into a life boat eject
We have been rolling the dice and thus far the rolls have been going our way
But luck is not how the CDC should be trying to the possible spread delay.
We now have a czar, an experienced political Blue hack
To marshal and focus the public resources or possibly to protect Obama’s political back?
No medical experience, no training other than as a political op
Hope he is getting medical advice on how to this spread of Ebola stop
