A measly little poem for these troubled times

Spotted Herring


A red herring with red spots
distracts us from the cliched
humongous black elephant
in our living/dying room.
many are the pachyderms

squeezing out our breathing space 
but this one has red spots.


Seven hundred measles cases
flashed on media's marquis,
silvery rainbow flickerings
instill fear and, worse, belief,
that this is a federal case,
a case of armageddon:
it's a case of overkill

Where on the marquis is news
of the hundreds of thousands
children diagnosed this year
with autism? these children
wish they had but a fever 
then the healing eruption
They wish they had their minds back.

Their parents long for measles
rather than blank stares, seizures,
heads banging on walls and floors.
Their parents learned MMR
was 'safe and effective' once:
Trust disappeared like their kids.
Not anti-vaxxers, EX-vaxxers.

The vaccine-educated.



For prose information on the measles hysteria, see RFK Jr's website, http://childrenshealthdefense.org.   There are many well-written, articles on the issue.

Please donate deeply to Kennedy's organization. He has the training and the skills to take the culprits to court, and he's doing it.  But it's expensive to go to court.
