Bird Flu (Haiku) - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

The bird flu virus
has now changed destinations,
flew to Florida.

High altitude did
let the virus catch a cold
they scrapped all vaccines.

They needed money,
so did create a virus
and scared the people.

So many crooks, though
not all of them are lawyers.
And some are doctors.

Big Pharma smiling
they own the world completely
and fleece all humans.

    Oh Herbert, my cynical friend, I hope this is just a ruse by the drug companies...still, it scares me to death. Your series of haikus led us right along.
