If You Only Listen - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

Come close listen to me
About you becoming worry
I'm telling you to hear me
To take my advice today
But you will not take heed
Why so very hard headed
And soon it was so quick
That you got very sick.

I told you to clean the house
To get rid of all the dirty mouse
Microbes so deadly must die
So sickness to you cannot fly
Take a daily bath my friend
Soap your body to clean
Cleanliness you always must do
Good health practice is a go.

Eat only nutritious food
For strong body it's so good
Fruits and vegstables you must buy
Not much of the junk food please try
Smoking is not good for you dude
Drinking alcohol is also bad attitude
Your lungs can surely burn
Also your liver can torn.

Weather by chance can cause you harm
Rainy days in town can post an alarm
Mosquitoes maybe infected with deadly disease
Both malaria and dengue can cause your life to cease
Fever for 3 dyas must be considered a threat
Have the doctor checks you up for treat
You ust act on time my friend
Come to DMC for your life to sustain.

When you meet an accident
Act on time and be prudent
Go to a hospital nearest you
And get treatment from a doctor
Don't get drugged or take any medicine
Please don't do it without discipline
Or it will be too late for you my friend
Poisoning your life is not right to end.
