A tanka written by Lee Sonogan

Mad cow disease -

I’ve always thought the word cow was funny. And cows are sort of tragic figures. Cows blur the line between tragedy and humor. – Gary Larson

Creutzfeldt-Jakob rare,


Taurine nom de guerre,

Sole bovine reparative,

Vaxxer/antibody pare.

The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while nature cures the disease. – Voltaire
