The Lyrics

I wrote this shortly after TB-infected Andrew Speaker boarded several planes and caused a panic a few months ago. Never posted it and just found it. Dated, but. . . .
Pox man,
You should not have shlepped onto that flight
And gone way over
To Europe, carrying inside your lungs a blight.

Pox man,
You caused several passengers a fright.
Gone to hitch your honey
And then you disappeared into the night.

Pox man,
You're put on a list as a breath blight.
Pox man,
You're put on a list as a breath blight.

Pox man (put on as breath blight) [5x]

Your lungs, one hopes, will not spew
Onto those downwind from you.
TSA knows it's not well you feel.
"TB" ain't for the Beatles' "This Boy."

So please don't try to hawk up
Onto my honeyed hog sup
That I munch on this overseas plane.
Stay way away!

Pox man,
You're put on a list as a breath blight.
Pox man,
You could cough and make this a death flight.

Pox man (put on as breath blight) [5x]
