Of Mycins and Men

(a little on the lite side)

They call them wonder drugs –

Cillins, mycins and sulfa.

Anyone of them can kill you,

Or, bring pain and upset.

If you forget which you react to,

They will not forget to remind.

They can cure syphilis, staph…,

Strep throat, pneumonia and TB.

World wars one and two killed more.

Without the mycins,

like the bisons, we’d be gone

With them…

Cancer, strokes and heart attacks await.

If they don’t get you, then Alzheimer’s.

Progress?
