HIV Positive

HIV Positive

I am HIV positive that I know,
But I will exercise my civic right,
As my blood continues to flow,
For my views to be heard I will fight.

Known to have been wayward and careless,
That does not mean I cannot be benevolent,
Which had made me to be fearless,
This malady has made me to be malevolent.

I Love playing poker with my dames,
After basking in the euphoria of many liquors,
which has actually earn me my fame,
Soon,I will varnish like the gas vapor.

But,the doctor told me I`m negative,
My blood was mistakenly substituted for,
Ha!this news serve as a purgative.

    Fine piece indeed, love your wit, the end made me laugh. We hear cases every day how mistakes are made, but we can pass it off as a joke when it comes with a happy ending like this, I know the trauma has killed many a people who are negative but told they were positive.

    I like the poem about HIV... You know that it can also go un-detectable, and for many year's there after. God must have made HIV that way. By the grace of God..there goe's I, Thank you for the positive remarks about 'THE DEVIL IS GOOD', because I was wondering about that one......Keep the good write-up, up!
