World Tb Day 2013 Celebrations At Irt Pmc&H, Perundurai - Poem by Dr John Celes

The germ that ancient mummies had,
And caused the deaths of many men,
is growing resistant with time
To drugs that killed it earlier, fast!

'Tis lurking still in various ways,
And causing mortality still,
Which can be prevented if we
Detect and treat all cases well.

This ain't the time to relax then,
For multi-drug resistant strains
Could rise to epidemic size,
And threaten poorer countries' folks.

The war against the TB germ
Must continue with increased verve,
Until the bacillus is gone
From face of earth, and all mankind!

To zero deaths from TB then
Means detecting all cases fast,
And treating them in proper ways,
Without one turning ev'r default!

World TB Day this year heralds
Concerted efforts to wipe out
The growing Tuberculous menace,
And save the mortal human race.
