The Mosquito and The Silver Bullet

Most deadly foe of all mankind
Giving sickness as you take health
The West thinks you can be killed
By dropping poison murderous to frogs
The West thinks you can be stopped
By buying nets that never get to the needy
The West thinks your disease can be cured
By medicines quickly stolen and adulterated
When the only thing that could stop you
Would be realizing how fearful a danger you are
And pouring all resources into improving health
And hygiene for those left to work and live
In the marsh grounds that breed you
But like all great problems
The West keeps looking
For the silver bullet
That can kill a mosquito
