If it isn't one thing its another. Now its Swine Flue. We heard on the news tonight some schools east of San Antonio are closing their doors this week to protect against it. Maybe its a good thing. I'm no expert. Just thought of how scared people were of Y2K. Some people went all out on that one in preparing. John and I only did half heartedly and after that day was over I wrote this silly poem.
Y2K has already come and went, a lot of news messages the news media sent.
So we stored up water to drink and flush, we made trips to the grocery store in a rush.
Didn't forget the batteries, tuna, or tissue, running up the charge card was not an issue.
Topped off the gas tank just in case, or is it just another American rat race?
Candles in the closet to light our way, extra blankets on our body to lay.
What will we do if the computers crash? We have on hand some extra cash.
Bought a first aid kit to replace the old. On this Y2K we were really sold.
We cancelled our plans to fly on a plane, some of us went a little insane.
We avoided the elevator to climb the stair. really looked silly but we didn't care.
Now we can redeposit our cash in the bank, drive around to use up the gas in the tank.
Eat tuna every day 'til we can't stand the smell. Ride the elevator and avoid the stairwell.
Give the blankets to the poor and store the tissue. What the news media tells us is an issue.
Think for ourselves and use some common sense. Don't ever let our lives get so utterly intense.
The year 2000 is unlike all the rest, but all in all it may be the very best.
