Food for Thought-A New List of Fears

I am working on a new list of fears,
Ebola,
Rheumatoid Arthritis,
Drinking the wrong beer,
Being shot by a white dude,
Getting fat,
Finding out my credit score,
Am I buying the right dog food?
Waking my wife when I snore,
Having my head cut off in some feud,
Should I eat more health food?
Are my nonexistent dentures coming unglued?
This is more than I can handle,
I’m going to light a fireless candle,
For I’m terribly afraid,
Of what might come about,
If a blaze were to burn out of control,
Especially since I’m writing on a totem pole.
