I've never been to Africa
But at the Urgent Care,
They questioned every patient
To find out who'd traveled there.

I understand their caution
For Ebola's got folks scared,
Although the hospitals all say
That they are well-prepared.

I've never been to Africa
But there's one thing I know - 
When I plan my next vacation,
That is not where I will go.

    A very sensible write, Ilene. We were stationed in Casablanca, Morocco (north Africa) in the late 1950's. Never heard of ebola - interesting assignment but have absolutely no desire for any part of Africa. Glad you enjoyed the Cowboy Hoedown write. Hope your week goes well - bob h

    Compassion for our fellow human should always be accompanied by caution, especially, in matters of health for if we become sick, we will be part of the problem and not of the solution! I loved your work and your humanity portrayed here!
