Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (Free verse) by Stephen Robins
Fly me to Kowloon And let me play amongst the SARS, Let me see what Spring is like In Quarantine, behind bars

Up the ladder: The Bloody War Of Angels
Down the ladder: save it from the age

Frightfully apt, reminds me of Horus8 poem on the Ebola virus. Good chap for keeping it short but effective, unpretentious and attention grabbing 7

This is splendid. Poems about diseases always seem to bring out the best in people.

Last year I made speech on social policy in the Rijksmuseum with Rembrandt's great painting of the Night Watch as backdrop. Today I find myself in the magnificent Ridderzaal at the heart of Dutch democracy, reading this great poem aloud to the people of Holland. They clap and sigh.
