JELLY JUNIPERS 

by John Yeo


We picked a basketful of sumptuous junipers for jelly,

An ancient remedy for arthritic and rheumatic ailments.

In the Middle Ages, junipers supposedly cured the plague.

Jellied junipers, reputed to be a cure-all for colds and flu, could be a defence against all viruses, old and new.

Jelly made from juniper, a reputed health superfruit, should be prescribed as an added weapon in the ongoing fight, alongside the proven scientific research and experimentation
in the armoury to counteract and help to destroy this ongoing blight.
