Fast Focus: ‘Are you worried about and Ebola outbreak in the U.S.?’ Be wise, live fully

To the tune of Maria from West Side Story.

Ebola …

The most terrible germ I ever learned:

Ebola, Ebola, Ebola, Ebola …

All the deadliest things of the world in a single word …

Ebola, Ebola, Ebola, Ebola …


I just read of a germ named Ebola,

And suddenly that germ

Will never be the same

To me.


I’ve just cursed a germ named Ebola,

And suddenly I’ve found

How distressing a sound

Can be!


Say it loud and the CDC comes running,

Say it soft and it’s almost maddening.


I wish I could stop reading of Ebola!

The most frightening sound I ever heard.


No question, Ebola is a deadly disease. Don’t bury your head in the sand, but don’t worry. What would worrying accomplish? Nothing. Unless there’s an inoculation available, there’s not much to do but hug the kids, eat a Dove bar, wax the car, stream a movie and get ready for winter.
