the red eye

this is not about that flight that some people take to las vegas
its well about a red eye

red eyes have multiple causes
allergies infection irritants the weed iritis

bet the cops around here are wanting to test people for the weed
when they get pulled over for traffic stops

in fact right now in the central texas area if your eyes are red
and itching and watering like crazy
then its that cedar pollen in the air that has reached record levels
ok its really mountain juniper but we all in this area
call it cedar fever

its all caused by last few years drought
then a wet fall
then a cold real cold winter days
followed by real warm windy winter days

the trifecta final event for that explosion of pollen that
caused a lot of people to call 911 that a fire was burning nearby

but its was only that explosion that can happen together to
make that cloud a red cloud that looks like smoke

people are a little jumpy around here about fires you know
after the fires weve had the last two years

there really is no good treatment if you are one of the unlucky ones
who are highly allergic to this stuff
despite all the claims of treatments from doctors pharmacists
homopathic folks
to take the red eye to vegas

  1. TOGD, yes, we could aide the drought and the "Cedar fever" if land owners would cut down all the "male" trees and drop the pollen counts, fire danger, and water pulled from the ground water by these "Cedar" Mountain Juniper trees. My $0.02
