Any children

"Any children? Polio drops..."
Said the woman on the door.
No. Not yet;
but touched to see a system on the go...

This is not the first time I have been asked, "Any children, we have come to give polio drops" by health workers walking door to door in the middle of a hot, sweltering afternoon.
Feels so good, so touched, can't express it enough.
I do swear at the 'system' gone all wrong, but I get mild and apologetic in my random, impulsive accusations everytime I remember the unsolicited bells in the middle of the afternoon and gentle inquiries from these women... Something is in place, something is going on afterall, in spite, or amidst all the corruption, red tape and controversies
