Intestinal Pains

Here I sit with gastroenteritis,
Wondering at the cause as here I lie.
Could it be Lactobacillus,
Bacteroides or E. coli?
Maybe it was something that I ate,
Perhaps some seafood, I don't know.
If that's the case, it could be Aeromonas,
Plesiomonas, or Vibrio.
Of all the choices that I think
It's likely Vibrio; which could it be?
It's likely not vulnificus or cholera
Or I'd be good and dead, you see.
And so for a tiny taste of crab
My stomach's put up quite a fuss,
Not for the meat that I have eaten,
But parahemolyticus.
