Mr Rogue

A wistful light shone down
Sarah was a sly clown, old dick 
To her was her Mr Rogue a 
Positive man, no not in the way 
You think of but the virus a long way off.

Sarah loved to clown around
Much to her Gina’s disgust
Oh men, men, men means 
Fun fun fun thought Sarah, 
Until one day she collapsed 
In a heap and her weight
Went down and down.

Stupid stupid woman thought 
Gina much to her disgust
The dogs body was ill
No fun this time Sarah.
It was a game.  It’s too late.
Draw the curtains.  She’s passed 
Away into death.
Another taken from this world 
because of Mr Rogue.

    "Mr Rogue a / Positive man..." haha nice take on H.I.V. positive. Creative writing here. Fun to read. Seems like AIDS is the last thing on people's minds nowadays. H1N1 has doubled from 40k confirmed cases to 80K+ confirmed just from July. Can't kiss somone without a risk soon—that's scarier than AIDS.
