Malaria Pill Man

I have just returned from a really long overseas army exercise. Here, I would like to share a true story about my platoon-mate who was G6PD deficient and ate about 10 Malaria pills in 10 days. Fortunately, he ate both Maloprim and Doxycycline. If he ate only Maloprim, he would have already been dead. Instead, he only turned very very yellow. He became anaemic and we had to give him some packets of blood. Don't ask me how anyone can be so blur. I don't understand either. But looking on the bright side, he inspired me to write a limerick. Here it is:

There once was a man from two three,
who thought Maloprim was for free.
So he consumed so much
that his skin became such
a yellowish hue all could see!

(two three is what we sometimes call our army unit - 23rd battalion)
