Variation on a nursery rhyme

Written by: Duke Beaufort

On tuffet to eat whey and curds
Miss Muffet is shat on by birds
All seems to be well            
As she can't smell or tell
Curds and whey are now just two-thirds

If you don't understand this allegory--read the note below:

Our biggest threats have always been from above--bad drugs, bad food, bad banking, bad leadership into aggressive war, massive pollution, etc.  The list is quite long, yet these individual "bad things" often seem to escape detection as they creep up on us--something like a spider.
