STD's Super Bugs

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the sexual waters another super bug has raised its head
Gonorrhea that is immune to antibiotics and spreading rapidly as condoms usage is shed
Oral sex is spreading the bug like a wildfire pushed by the winds that howl
Millions infected as pharma worries about throwing in the towel
Like HIV the infected have no symptoms to a partner warn
If pregnant a really good chance to infect the newborn
The sexual revolution we now know comes with a bitter price
Clearly STD’s are a pain not very nice.
We may be the dominant form in the pyramid of life
But the lowly bacteria like staph totally drug resistant becoming more rife
Intellect and goodness against bacteria go for naught
A race against time for vaccines to be sought
Finding drugs to combat drug restraint strains
A great crap shoot where profits ebb and wane
Same crap shoot when promiscuity is the Russian roulette of the day
No symptoms too often not on display
