term-ending madness

Necrotizing fasciitis
Microbes come and try to bite us
Overwhelming our immunity
Getting busy with impunity
Turning tissues black and gangrenous
They go all, like, damn and dang in us
Try the topical negative pressure
Pump the Vanco, up the measure
Cutting-edge docs have been learning some old tricks;
It seems maggots work via proteolytics
Whatever it is that finally works
You'll wish it was what you had thought to do first.

(In my head, there's a jaunty little music-hall sort of a tune under all that. Welcome to the final week of my classes, and t-minus seven and a half hours until the deadline for this paper.)
