Maybe they had been a little rash
and stopped a little too late.
Do we throw away people with driving accidents?
A bad choice of date,
an indulgence in drugs with shared needles
at an age when life seems too short
to go slow and think twice,
a blood transfusion,
a used needle,
isn’t it all an accident too?
AIDS patients are victims,
Before you judge,
remember, you could be one too…
