"WHEN POSITIVE IS NEGATIVE"

An outcast fit only for the lepers' colony A burden big beyond bear A huge bear too ugly to hug An unwanted stranger to family, friends and foes A perfect tool for Government's propaganda A clean cover for Health Ministry's graft A sure means for Activists' foreign AIDS and funds A goldmine for multinational pharmaceutical giants An alien in the place of her birth Technically, they also call me HIV/AIDS positive person For nicety, I am also known as "PLWHA" Why then do you wonder That we're wheeled into morgue slabs Time before our fixed time.
