A son walks into the classroom
Only to meet his doom
The next day he falls ill with a fever
He looks for a reliever
But alas! The boy lives in poverty
And he is just a commodity
All it took was a sneeze!
A mother leaves home to work for little
At night she is in the hospital
The prognosis is grim
She has to lose a limb
With no funds, her house is taken
Her world is shaken
All it took was a cough!
Communicable diseases can strike at work
And they prevail at schools
We must see through the murk
And come up with new tools...
We can share our resources to make our lives better!
