Septic Paws

 Poetry Challenge Day 91 (Mon Jan 3)

“Obey the laws
and wear the gauze.
Protect your jaws
from septic paws.”

Oh how I would like to be
the author of those lines.

“Wear a mask and save your life! A mask is 99% proof against influenza.” (An advertising campaign in California, circa 1918). Although I’m not aware of any data supporting the 99% number, certainly over 100 years ago the knowledge about how to protect yourself from airborne contagion was readily available and acknowledged.
