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

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
