AIDS


What is AIDS?
I really don't know
each day I find myself with more questions to be answered
But where do I turn for the right one?
I pray please don't knock next at my door,
For when I hear the knock I will not answer
BUT IT HAS A KEY, THE MASTER KEY
the one to open all doors.

UPDATE: (Thursday 1DEC05 14.03 GMT) A timely reminder from from an NHS Consultant with NHS Glasgow that AIDS can affect anyone: "The myth still persists in some places that HIV/Aids is an illness that affects particular groups of people, and that's just not the case." Indeed.
