The Ole Flu Is Bugging

The ole flu bug took to the skies
To see what he could do
Making winter miserable
Cold and wet and BLUE.
‘No pity here’ he clearly shows,
Skyrocketing around—
Effectuating his mission
To knock you to the ground.
So be wary everyone.
Be careful in all things,
Because the seasonal flu bug
Is waiting in the wings.
Note: According to the CDC, so far, at least 20 children have died from the flu during the 2017-2018 flu season. Seven of those deaths were reported in the first week of January 2018. The last update was 1/12/18 by the CDC. According to Fox News: since October, “California is hard hit with at least 27 deaths of people under 65 in the state.” Fox added that the virus in question is called Influenza A (H3N2). This information is taken from ‘InfoNews for Your’ – flu deaths. Well wishes to all.
