infection is returning

i read the stories about the ebola virus
and how it keeps growing in numbers in africa
wonder when it will jump continents

then the respiratory virus thats traveling across
the us affecting kids making some of them real sick

the other day i was sitting at my easy chair
peering out the window
staring i was just athinking
i realized as my mind was awhorling
you are getting that infection again
i was afraid this would happen
my wife she was concerned
she thought she had put a stop to its spread
she didnt
its infectious and contagious almost addictive it is

you see a friend is moving and is waiting on their new
house to be built so we are babysitting their plants they
have in pots and their shrubs and trees

well it looks like a garden store around here now
some he is allowing me to use at the habitat for humanity houses
save us $50  every time i plant one at at new site
so i dont mind

the problem is as i sit here
he left me his rainwater tanks
to store here until they get moved in
i sit here watching them laying on their side
not being used

it was especially hard to look when we got rain
all i could think was i could be filling them up with rainwater

what if i sort of put back up straight
maybe if i set them on bricks
they would look better
heck if youre going to do that then you might as well
hook them up to the system
and hook them all together in a row
then hook a water hose to them

maybe use the water to water all those plants

yea thats what ill do

then i realized ive got reinfected
no runny nose or cough
ive be reinfected you see there is no immunity

to the rainwater collection virus

then he had these two small 50 gallon tanks
he said you want them i dont think well use them at
the new house

so i said yes
knowing that i would be giving them to the new habitat for
humanity homeowner
who wanted to collect rainwater

shes a nurse but i didnt dare tell her they were contagious
that rainwater collection virus
she was about to get infected

there is no cure

get infected
