Infected Pizza Story Inspires Verse

There’s a story in today’s paper about a restaurant worker who may have infected some of the people he served.  We think this is a good use for emergency alerts, so it inspired this verse:

A guy making pizza got hepatitis

Now public health folks are having gastritis

2400 pizzas could have been infected

That’s thousands of people who should be protected

Before you start looking both yellow and green

You need to get in here and get our vaccine

When food’s gotten germy someone’s going to get hurt

It makes no difference if entrée or dessert

Before food gets you sick, you need an alert
