Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan was hospitalized on May 25, 1997 seriously ill with histoplasmosis, a potential life threatening fungal infection that causes swelling of the sac surrounding the heart. Histoplasmosis is caused by the fungus histoplasma capsulatum. Dylan was treated with antibiotics, and his condition was not considered life threatening. Doctors said his condition was made more severe by a delay in diagnosis

Poetry from Bob

One of our judges Bob Devereux has been creative: 

Spores floating in our atmosphere
Spores that the naked eye can’t see
I like to think they work for me
Recycling life’s detritus
 
Sometimes friends can get up my nose
Good friends can be bad enemies
It’s hard to breath at times like these
If they don't keep their distance
 
Keep looking for the way to win
This fight with space invaders
Keep spores at bay and in their place
Recycling life’s detritus
