Ode to Cystitis

Cystitis is the infection of the bladder within
Causing burning pain and frequent urinating
Most cases of Cystitis will occur in women
The bacteria has a shorter distance to travel than in men

Honeymoon cystitis is a well known cause of urine infection
So are people who are exposed to sexual infection transmission
Insufficient water or fluids tend to accumulate germs in the urine
Try to drink at least 8 glasses of water to wash out wastes from within

There may be mild fever and body aching
Sometimes there is cloudy or blood in the urine
The patient can feel quite bad and very restless
He or she needs an injection to make the pain less

Antibiotics should taken to stop the urine infection
Painkillers and antispasmodics are the other medications
Usually that should cure the cystitis for all people
Recurrences are usually quite frequent for anyone

-An original poem by Kenneth Kee
