WITH A SLICE OF LYME


WITH  A  SLICE  OF  LYME

With a slice of lyme, researchers

Drink cheers to patent rights

While thousands suffer agony

Because of legal slights…

Lyme disease a spirochete

Bacterial invasion force

Where deer ticks surround the prey,

People near the forest;

Researchers compromised by bucks

From pharmaceuticals

Set regulations on how to treat

Ignoring research not in line

With their compromised cuticles.

People suffer while doctors fear

Retribution from fascist  regs…

Doctors treat folks underground

Have compassion on square pegs.

A “P.B.S.”  program— Rhode Island’s best—

Awakening the shame

Of paid-off doctors spewing half-truths

And forcing others toward the same;

All this for a bunch of bacteria-patent fools

Protecting what’s been paid

To stonewall all who would open gates…legal challenges have been laid;

Insurance company wonks are glad

That dividends are paid,

The paid-off doctors writing code

Are prostitutes, well-laid.

(An opinion piece, based upon a Rhode Island P.B.S. program shown tonight concerning Lyme Disease, it’s discovery and controversy)
