Press Illness
by DCDave

The mononucleosis pathogen
Has not been identified,
But its effect upon you
Is too obvious to hide.

So if you have the malady
It's not hard for you to know it,
A very simple work-up
Of your blood will show it.

Likewise the insidious agent
We may never isolate,
But it's very clear that something
Is infecting our Fourth Estate.

We don't need a party
On whom to place the blame
To recognize "coverupitis"
If it must have a name.

David Martin
