Ode to Diagnosis

An Ode to Diagnosis
In gratitude to those who helped!

The entity snuck through the gray
to steal and hurt and take away
for months or years unknown it crept
attacking just when e'er it would
destroying and misunderstood.

Then MRIs and doctors’ eyes
blew shrouding mist and fog aside
and shock and fear gripped those around
they faltered in their daily stride
and gasped, “An ENEMY abides!”

“Why, yes!” the two of us replied
a new glint hard'ning in our eyes
“We see it there and now we know
just who it is with whom we fight!”

Laughter is good flu medicine ^-^

I got this in an e-mail today:


What is the difference between Bird Flu and Swine Flu?
For bird flu you need tweetment

and for swine flu you need oinkment.

(If you are looking for actual help with the flu... I have written something about that here.)
