Treasure Island

Marvin Brato Sr

(March 2,1960 / Davao City, Philippines)

The H.A.C.T

I was trained to be part
To render a job with a heart
And initiate a chat on a theme
Mission of the HIV /AIDS Core Team

It is an alarming case
Diagnosis on medical base
The Human Immuno-Virus
Most transmitted by sexual abuse

Abuse of sex is the culprit
Indulgence with promiscuity
And yet not learning to be cautious
Since not all men and women are virtuous

Our team composed of medical strategists
A doctor, nurse and medical technologist
We join to accomplish something helpful
By helping those infected to be hopeful

Medical technologist does the blood test
From the volunteer who submits for HIV test
After the nurse conducted the pre- counseling
Would makes the doctor's diagnosis revealing

Yes the truth may convey a shock
To the victim infected with such fact
That HIV has now marred his existence
In later life the AIDS stage will go intense

H.A.C.T. has a dignified duty
To assist those afflicted with HIV
Now is the time for a high risk person
To cease from engaging unsafe sexual action

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
