Chlamydia: How do we get rid of ya?

(This poem is not directed at innocent spouses)


Chlamydia, Chlamydia,
How do we get rid of ya.?

Take up painting,
Stay at home.
Learn to play the saxophone.

Raise Chihuahuas.
Learn cabinetry.
Take ballet lessons,
Make furniture for the family.

Write a novel,
Even if it stinks,
Don’t drown yourself in alcoholic drinks.

Write a poem
Raise a horse.
Cleaning up the stable,
Will keep you on course.

Stop feeling sorry,
For yourself,
Chlamydia feeds 
On the dissatisfied elf..

Take up philoso-phy,
Learning to think 
Helps keep your mind free.

Don’t become a societal leach,
Look at the ocean.
Go and lay down on the beach.

Enjoy the essence of your town,
The people, the smells, and the sounds.
Notice things you never noticed before.
(That will keep you off the floor.)

Get a cat or a dog,
It will even be good if you tended a frog.

Make it not always, “me, me,me”
Build a playhouse in a tree
Do good for the helpless,
Young and elder-ly.

Social disease is for people who have no good aims.,
And play too many selfish games.

Most of all,
Go pray in Church.
The Creator will never,
Leave you in the lurch.
