Retrodictions, canto 1, quatrain 8

A bovine needle prevents disease;
expires a fire more dire than war;
your body’s on guard, your mind’s at ease
yet the Porcelain Throne saves even more.

Commentary by Brother Quark:
This is a tribute to our holy Pope’s Swiss Guards; and of course the Papacy itself (see below).

Commentary by N. Hellerstein:
This is about vaccination, with a shout-out to sanitation (see below).
