It is a strong word to the ears,
Though it has been there for years,
To some it causes fears,
To some it brings cheers.

It has an important role to the social system,
Though it made Jeremiah cast in the cistern,
It brought Mandela a terminal sickness,
And has made some non-existence.

It has made countries to fight among themselves,
It is like ants and worms in the same shelve,
It has divided countries into halves,
The system is no more straight but curve.

Some has referred it as poly ticks,
Since politicians have no etiquette,
So they are seen as many ticks,
Whose intentions are to make people sick.
