The Triumvirate: Rifampicin, Isoniazid, Pyrazinamide

No animal reservoir, no sure prophylaxis
Only homo sapien exclusive:
Timeless malice,
Timeless mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Where is tabula rasa, where is innocence
Were they or weren’t they left in the Garden of Eden
As the fruit of knowledge touched the first of the genders
Aren’t we all cursed in utero with primary complex

We could have been equipped with autacoids
But our id is a weak immune system almost void
And as the clock runs against the splash of droplet nuclei
Both the righteous and corrupt wrote respondez s’il vous plait

Slow-growing, latent, dormant, manifesting
In penetrable anatomy and in pages of hostile history
The multi-resistant had made their marks in scrolls and death
Immortal in its Aqueous Transmission themed area concentrated

Nothing really acute, sluggish and mostly only chronic
The age of the Earth directly proportional to the sputum smear positive.

When what cures evil, cures leprosy
When who suffers is the one who filters
Heroes and lepers and skeletons with a precaution for neuropathy
Go for intensive and continuous therapy.
