Bites, a people & a system

The venom is about to be unleashed 
The tendom is about to be unlaced
Their trombosis stings 
Their diagnosis stinks
Is this recourse for the vile syphonage of our blood?
Just to say that a few slender ones have made the larger homo-sapien suffer…
Is it not the same things that has been said again?
They think we do not understand where they are coming from
We think we do understand where they are comoing from
But what is this trend of thought that we tow?
We? ...
I? ...
My head aches from fever 
My body arches from a shiver
Malaria is the best form of business development!
Is this not madness?
Sometimes my kind think that chloroquine would be the best
Sometimes their kind think that resistance is the best
That leaves us with a middle artesunate amodiaquine
But which of the two is best?
My people in the heart of the matter have weak hearts
Die people must!
Cry people must!
Run people must!
Do we not do these things now?
Do we not fear & dread now?
They have failed us is the judgement…no, the sentence.
I weep for those that will be bitten; but without tears.
The tears can't flow anymore.
The fears can flow anyhow
Think! Think! Think!
The discourse continues shortly after this bite-out…(BEAT YOUR BODY TO KILL
