Anitang Malagnat

Fever-Struck Anita. When a person gets a cold from another person and the sickness gradually worsens due to the person's neglect and his constant blaming of the source of virus, who is to blame? The one who infected, or the one who didn't do anything about his own sickness?

I Anita Sibal iya'ng pakilala ku kekayu
Mapandilu't malinis, tutung maingat a tau
Exercise kagising, balanced diet ngan pati ugtu
Mipawasan bagya gulut, manalili neng baru

Let me introduce to you Anita Sibal / bathing often and a really hygienic person / exercising every morning, following a balanced diet / changing shirt after perspiring a bit

Binisita ya misan itang Atsi nang Anita
Baradu ya pu busbus arung, kuku-kuku ya pa
E na apansin Anita, ati ne king arap na
"A-ching!" ngana ning Atsi, asingap ning dalagita

Anita's elder sister visited once / she had clogged nose and coughed often / Without Anita noticing, she was already in front of her / "Ha-choo!" the elder sister went, and the younger one inhaled it all

Bukas, oyta na, mebayat ya katawan ing wali
Bungad nea' naman bosis at ing balat na mapali
Tambing linub king isip na, meyawa ya kang Atsi
O't kasi e ne ikit lalapit napun ing alti

The day after, the younger sister was feeling weak / her voice was distorted and her skin was hot / She concluded at once she got it from Atsi (elder sister) / Why did she not see the bitch approaching yesterday

Penyumpa ne pu ing Atsi na king ikua nang salun
Kasalanan na kanu o't pati iya míkasipun
Atiti mu ne ing ebun king mapali nang tundun
Panulung lagnat, I Anita matamad yang mantun

For that she cursed her Atsi more than once / she said she's the reason she got a runny nose / One can fry eggs on her hot nape already / Anita was too lazy to look for some medicine

Kalabas ning atlung aldo, ay, ginrabi ing sakit
Nang Anitang e magigisan sipun a pupusit
Ing Atsi na pánagkasan ne pa mu ring pasitsit
"Ba't kasi binisita ya pa ing tontang malarit!"

Three days after, she became worse / her nose won't stop producing mucus / she still cursed Atsi even just in whisper / "Why did the stupid prick have to visit?"

Ing kutang ku tungkul king salun nang Anita Sibal
Ninu pu ing kekatamung dapat pamarsalanan
Ing menawa kayang babaing ibat keta kilual
O ing másakit a, ing sarili, matamad uluan

My question now regarding the sickness of Anita Sibal / who, ladies and gentlemen, must we blame / the lady from outside who passed to her the disease / or the sick person who was too lazy to heal herself
