Super Bugs ........ [department Of Health Warning! ; Very Short; Humour/Humor] - Poem by Bri Edwards

Super Bugs! Watch out for them; they’re on the prowl.
Antibiotic-resistant, they look at humans and grimly growl.
They’ve evolved due to Mankind’s own antibiotic abuse,
through repeated patient and doctor “under” AND “over” use.
These bacteria have the potential to cause Mankind’s next great plague,
when millions will surrender to Super Bugs, ...... while waving a white flag.

So, please, don't you take antibiotics when not prescribed or needed.
But, IF prescribed, take-as-directed, or good health............ may be defeated.

    Very true. I rarely go to the docs myself because I knew about this problem. Keep your immune system strong and let it kick the bugs in face until they sod off and die. (Report) Reply
