Dengue Fever - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

Mosquito bites
you off-guard
on broad daylight
fever sits to decrease platelets!

A viral infection
of deadly poison
of death...
when you start to bleed!

No drugs just electrolytes
to dehydrate the body
drink Gatorade
and eat durian!

Would you believe
from 65 the platelet went 80/ml of blood
and soon the fever slowly fade
as the platelet count becomes normal at 150/ml!

Dengue can be fatal
if not given prompt care
but he best way to prevent it
is to keep the surrounding clean!
