I have seen it make its debut across the globe.

It has a dissatisfying odor that requires an infamous nose.

It is well known for targeting consumers from all walks of life.

It is a disease that causes prolonged salivation even after a tasty meal.

Unfortunately, we all have tasted the venom of this disease.

It continues to destroy the human heart by polluting it with poisonous blood

I’m afraid that its potency continues to strengthen each day.

I pray that our cure is a consultation of our heart and our conscience.
