AIDS: A scary disease

Location

 

Use protection they said
Be smart! Use that brain in your head
Make yourself be respected
Don't be one of the 60 million people infected
 
Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome(AIDS) it's what it's called 
When you hear about it you should be appalled
It's caused nearly 25 million deaths
Poor people, who have taken their last breaths
 
It can be passed on by blood, semen, even birth
You don't want to be one of those people on earth
Get tested regularly they warned
I just looked at then and scorned
 
I know how to be protected 
I'm not going to be one of the people affected
A lot of  people don't think that they are
Then suddenly, there left with what's like permanent scar.
 
Just remember the facts I told you
Because what I'm saying is true
Just be smart
Keep your blood healthy and pumping through that heart
