No Aid for AIDS


Dr. M. Ashaq Raza – TRANSCEND Media Service

Whether rich or a poor
AIDS knocking every door
BUT ……..
Many people still don’t trust
And for some comfort or lust
Wonder in streets up to late night
Or waste money on the Internet
For the very syndrome
To carry it sweet home
And spread it to their families
To their dream roses and lilies
And make them orphans
Or beggars to the parents
Who are but these ignorantS?
Who are these life-vagrants?
Who don’t know this AIDS
From which a doctor afraids
For which no wealth, no aid
Of which death only is maid
Once positive never negative
Neither doctor nor preventive
No medicine no cure
No family and no dear
So dreaded so dangerous is the AIDS
Then attention, on cares must be paid
Whether husband or wife
Must be loyal, in the life
Follow science or religions
Discard illegal all relations
Or follow old healthy culture, the society
Where early marriage was a good remedy
Where people live with dignity and a reason
Where people did not die, without a  season
You have to choose an option
This is a sincere suggestion
Because your children need you
Of parents, the only deed, you
You are symbol of nation
Your are the bright vision
Your family and the friends
These messages, they send
Please don’t bring this syndrome
To your lovely, dream home
Because no Aids for AIDS
Death only, then is the maid
