Beware the common cold

Beware the common cold

Beware the common cold with the snuffles and those sneezes 
Is it Coronavirus blowing amidst the boisterous breezes ?
Spreading like wildfire within our atmosphere
One didn’t worry about the common cold it wasn’t something to fear

But in these days of doubtfulness and uncertainty
With the latest appliances and new-found technology
Lurking in our midst 
Threatening humanity
A flu-like contagious infection 
is gradually growing in it’s transmittable profanity

Where will it all end ?
Alas one does not know
But take my advise
Be careful where you go
No one is not invincible
Be it young or old
From this dreaded disease
Mimicking the common cold
Coronavirus is widening in it’s wake
Let’s pray the powers that be 
Kill it for pity’s sake

Hi Jill...Isn't that so scary?  I did hear good news today that in Australia they have found a cure for the outbreak of it in China and now they can prevent further deaths and get it under control.  Thank God!  But, there is always the threat of a new outbreak.  I get nervous whenever the flue goes around the schools with my kids being susceptible...but it is even worse when something spreads that cannot be diagnosed or cured.....sigh..   o x  ;)

This is a scary one as it spreads invisibly...before the already infected display symptoms. That is what I have been led to believe...I say...be prepared for a rocky ride people...if you are looking for the severity of this...look at how large the police escort was carrying those 83 people to quarantine and the fact that all the medics and care givers dealing with them are also going into quarantine. Interesting that this disease apparently is a direct consequence of China's horrific and disgusting treatment and torture of all animals...just goes to show..mankind cannot get away with doing as it likes. Hope to god they find a cure soon. ❤️
