She called him Love Doctor, Because he took care of her fever which he caused. He was both her illness and her cure, The toxin and the vaccine at the same time. He gave her fever, Made her grow hot with desire And he also made her cold, When he made her mad. For a time love made in a time of fever was delicious, And the signs and symptoms of her disease made her happy, She shivered with joy at his touch, Broke out into a cold sweat that the thought that they may not always be together.
Then her heart broke, And the fever broke too. She was well again. He cured her of love, Now she has immunity. Lovesickness now she can’t catch, Even when fever is contagious, Because she is vaccinated!
