Replicator! - Poem by Jacques Sprenkie Mateya

I am HIV the retrovirus
I am HIV the replicator
When I was born,
I was given a mission to replicate, then I replicate
I have my own ways of transmission
I like open wounds and blood to blood contact
I love sores and unsafe sex
When you help someone use cloves.

I am HIV the replicator
I am life threatening condition
And you can live with me happily
If you know how to manage me

I am HIV the son of AIDS
I don’t like ARV’S
BECOUSE they suppress me
And I am a great pretender
I have my own depressions
I have my cousins Opportunistic infections
But they are curable

I am a great pretender
I can be in your body and you can’t know
Slowly and simply I replicate
Because I am HIV the replicator

I have no Marcy
I have no favors
I don’t take bribery
And I replicate

The only way that you can avoid me with,
Is to use my simple three steps
Abstain
Be faithful to one tested partner
Or at least be wise and condomise
Because I am HIV the replicator
And I replicate……
