Yellow Jack

Yellow Jack is up the mast
Somebody, call the doctor
I’ve heard this strain strides fast
Come quick! before we’ve lost her

Yellow Jack is up the mast
Unfurled in winter breeze
Doctor, keep this germ from world
Keep mankind from its knees

Yellow Jack is up the mast
We must hem it in
Will this doctor come at last?
Lest this plague begin

Before those others know the fever
And by ache and pain become beleaguered
Let no cheek boil a scarlet rage
Give those in youth the chance to age
