Inoculate your ideas; culture your thoughts;
Subculture your knowledge in new media;
Incubate and wait for it to grow-
Big like mountains;
Sterilize your pride; autoclave your jealousy;
Pasteurize your depression;
Either in an anoxomat or in a candle jar,
Don't let yourself down;
Neither choose to be an aerobe nor an anaerobe!
We are all 'God of microbes',
As we help them grow and we also know how to kill them,
But sometimes we don't and couldn't;
We test their biology which was always a mystery;
And now we mess with their chemistry;
We cautiously grow them with difficulties, either in hot or cold
And provide whatever they want for their nourishment.
We struggle a lot to identify them, after all what we have done,
We also check their vulnerability to their enemies-
Then we kill them to save our species;
Whether it is right or wrong!
Even though they are armed congenitally or accidentally or by evolution:
By search and research, we are clever enough to find cure
For their therapeutic resistance;
This should be 'the gold standard' to gaurd from enmity!
When is this war gonna end???
Now I ask you all one question. When is their cure or ours???
What would happen if we both lose?
I don't have to write anymore…….
