Tis burning

Cystitis – tis a nasty inflammation

When you pee, tis a burning sensation

Please do not desist, to the Chemist forthwith!

But if the pain persists

Despite medical reliefs

To the GP, begone!

Your pee tested, anon

Warrant further investigation

A prescription, henceforth

For antibiotic intervention


Tis a urinary tract infection.
