Bourbon in Excess May Kill Slowly But Bourbon In a Tick Is Way Too Quick

On the battlefront against bacteria and viruses the news can be somewhat depressing
No matter how hard big Pharma is on the frontline to engage in depressing
We all know that alcohol even the best of bourbon in excess
Will put even the strongest body under great stress
Now we must fear a virus borne by ticks of the same name
Just discovered and lethal with no idea how to tame
The virus with the bourbon name is a new thogotovirus, a tied shoe lace thread
But like Ebola if it infects you, a good chance you will soon be dead
Jack Daniels, a bourbon beyond compare,  must be ready to a law suit bring
Almost unpatriotic for a so named virus its reputation to sting
Or maybe a marketing slogan in a perverse ploy
If you are hit with a Bourbon invested tick, time for many shots of Jack Daniels to employ
