HIV or S-h-i-v
by the doc
Age Group: Adult
have aids, don't worry, be happy
either way, life is just a post-poned inevitable death...
Prevention is better than cure [got what that means, now?.. hence utilize contraceptives]
In developing nations,
through toilet seats, besides rodents, salmonella float happily
and its repeated abuse
like bacillary dysentry
does not spread HIV,
its just loose motions or Delhi belly
yet say in India
or any other third world countries,
spitting tobacco-leaves is very common
so is smoking, hookah and the chillam.
especially in a country where people sleeper-less have to utilize nature for sanitary purposes..
a healthy mind, i.e. street-smart
should have thought of building trench latrines
thinking of little objectives in Life, a healthy body
would be good for
absorption or digestion
assimilation as in the stomach
distribution as by the efficient bloody supply
Thanks William Harvey
due to deficiency in self-defense, the pandemic of pulmonary Kochs disease, with bleeding cough
or simply tuberculosis will strike and wipe out people faster than HIV
be it a biped social animal or a quadruped
a bovine, or a porcine, or porcelain dishes
stupid...or silly...or plainly its serendipity
Author's Notes: thanking you for your letter...kindly enjoy edited version...
In your poem, you state, "saliva will definitely transmit HIV, so be
careful of spittle."
I do not believe this to be true. Saliva is not an effective means of
HIV transmission. One would have to ingest gallons of saliva before
being at risk.
I am a Gay man who has kissed many HIV positive men. It is a very
common issue here, and so is the scientific evidence. I remain HIV
negative. Saliva is an extremely unlikely method of transmitting HIV.
I do not mean this message to be offensive, but I do challenge your
proposal. I have enjoyed all poetry you have posted, but HIV is not
transmitted through saliva. I ask that you do not take this message
offensively, but your proposal in your poetry is not true.
I have lived with the threat all of my life. I am in a relationship
with someone who is HIV positive, and again, I am HIV negative. I
take an HIV test every three to six months. I beg of you, please do
not believe HIV is transmitted by saliva. Documented cases show that
mouth to mouth transmission occurs when there are bleeding gums with
both partners, but saliva was not the factor, only the blood was.
I respectfully ask that you be careful with your messages, as this is
a very, very sensitive issue with me.
Again, I do not wish any disrespect with my message to you, but
unless you live with HIV issues every day of your life, I would ask
that you be more scientific with your relayed evidence. It really
hurt my feelings that you would perpetuate a falsehood about HIV. I
implore you, in the most respectful way that I can, it simply is not
