Focus On E-Coli Eradication - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

first fame media crack top hats
German health experts
blamed Spanish cucumbers
could not even identify
a virile new E-Coli strain
busy pointing finger of blame

said it was cucumbers
then it was German beans
identified guilty farmers
then retracted accusations
within twenty-four hours
after sales of these crops sours

give German health experts
our helping hands
impose accusation bans
until credible evidence sources
professionally lab sprouts
concentrate on saving victims

hint most severe illnesses
hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS)
has serious complications
is a type of E-Coli forget media hype
Shiga toxin-producing E-Coli (STEC)
a highly toxic strain demands focus
