Pro Or Con - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich 2

Pro Or Con

Remember climate change and Sars?
New strains of flu, oh what a farce.
America your sheep will thrive
they keep the stupidity alive.
They get their shots and take their pills,
drink fluoride to prevent some ills,
like sheep they easily are led
as Lederer correctly said.
The schools don't teach you how to think
just how to spray in case you stink,
now it is found that underarms
have innocence and other charms,
you block the apocrines for long
and something in the cells goes wrong.
The word scares many, cancer will
it makes both mind and body ill,
we cause our ills through sheer neglect
the pay physicians to detect
small aberrations deep inside
it starts with words like 'open wide'.
The man who wears a starched white coat
will surely have the antidote.
I do regret, it is a sham
and Mary had no little lamb.
So listen carefully, dear Don
cause modern healing is a con.
