Commercial, neglected disease – Nature indifferent
Mechanisms, molecules, methods persistent
A molecule is a molecule, a sequence, a sequence
A curve is a curve, an equation’s transcendent
Money is indifferent, as it well should be
But as people we care about malaria and TB
And T. brucei, T. cruzi, don’t forget leishmaniasis
Which rolls off the tongue just like schistosomiasis
This doesn’t need to be a zero sum game
A drug that makes money, can help the poor all the same
And science is different, together we learn from everything
Chemistry, Biology, Web-Technologies converging
New tools and ideas grow faster than population growing
Occasional breakthrough, gives 10x more leveraging
Ultimately it’s not our individual gifts that matter
Collective learning, collaborating is what allows us to shatter
The past and the present and future more hopeful
So as 2014 approaches with your eggnog bowlful
Consider a New Year’s resolution less boastful
One more insight, one deeper collaboration
Do it together, do it with CDD
…and do it for others.
