image for Ode to Eastern Equine Encephalitis

An Ode to Eastern Equine Encephalitis on the Occasion of a Major Epidemic that has Acquired a Pathogenicity that Imperils Mankind Across the Globe and May Destroy Civilization as It Is Known to Us

Presented in Its Entirety by the Poet Laureate on the Mundane, the Preposterous, and the Absurd: Sir Percival Blink, Esq. to His Most Excellent and Gracious Majesty as He Lies Dying from an Incurable Case of Galloping Hemorrhoids.

There once was a Frenchman named Jules
Whose arrogance suffered no fools

Till an infected mosquito
Punctured his Speedo

Now he slumps in a saddle and drools.
