Before I left they punctured me, many, many times,
for immunity from nasty things with names that will not rhyme.
There were boosters for diseases where a second stab was needed,
I don't like pain and did complain, but finally conceded.
Rabies, Hepatitis, both flavours A & B,
Tetanus, Yellow Fever, and Meningitis C.
Encephalitis, Typhus, 'Please roll up your shirt',
then the next thing they would always say was, 'This wont really hurt'.
Doxycycline for malaria is coursing through my veins,
and aspirin when I crash the bike to ease the aches and pains.
There's a cocktail made of chemicals, mixed up with my blood.
I'm immunised from everything, except for
Caffeine in the morning, another spray of deet,
a squirt of stuff goes in my boots to kill the smell of feet.
Anti-histamine for bug bites, to stop their nasty itch,
then I'm set to face the day, without a health based hitch.
