Treasure Island

Bashyam Narayanan


A terror even to a terrorist


I am a terror even to a terrorist
Till recently I was not that popular
Many people suffered
My presence in their body
Many managed to bear the
Range of symptoms I tnismrigger in body
By taking right medicines at regular intervals
They survive but take really sometime
To become really normal
Some fail miserably
I invade their defence mechanisms
Throw off gear some of their vital systems
And bring about their end
I turned very popular for wrong reasons
As I was responsible for the demise
A very successful man in film industry
Why, a doctor was infected by me
Though he escaped elimination
I am spreading my net widely
Every day some hundred or so people
Give me entry into their physique
People have found that I get distributed
Through mosquito bite
And they are chasing the mosquito
It is not my problem
As long as human beings are there
I will be there
And my race survive in them
I am proud to make you all know
That I can penetrate security cordon
And presently am housed in the body
Of a terrorist
Who, with some others, threw a challenge
To a great nation
He is there in the jail for almost four years now
In a tight security net
But, me there in him
He is yet to get all the symptoms I normally initiate
I have the potential to soon turn
A terror to a terrorist
I am none other than the dengue virus

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
