a letter poem
Dear HIV,
I represent a beleaguered remnant of
a once mighty force.
We are dug in
nearly vanquished
by our host, of all things!
Selfish, clever,
they developed a lethal poison
from bodies of our dead.
We heard of your remarkable strategy,
changing your basic structure often
makes you immune to poison
from the bodies of your dead. 
We implore you in this desperate hour to
share your remarkable secret with us. 
We earnestly request emergency consultation.
You are our last hope.
Respectfully,         
Poliomyelitis
