Oh how I hate you
My temperature is burning hot
it seems that now all I’ve got
is an AWFUL lot of snot
My nose just keeps on running
like a rabid waterfall.
My ears just keep on plugging
and I cannot hear at all.
Then there’s the balloon….
Oh wait I guess that’s my head
It feels like it will float away soon
or maybe just explode instead
Everyone knows how much I enjoy humor
but when I laugh my lungs start burning
which trigger nonstop coughing
until I cough one up onto the floor
And OH the horrid NOISE …
not just the snorting, blowing and hacking
but NOW my voice is squeaking and cracking
and I sound like pubescent 13 year-old BOYS!!
No prescription from the pharmacy
Will “cure” this malady
Except suggestions of “lots of soups and tea”
But the only thing that is helping is making lots of pee.
ESPECIALLY, it seems, when I have to SNEEZE!!
I have to do something
to make me drink more liquid
and block out the noise making my ears ring
I raise my cracking voice and Sing:
‘Tis the the season to be snotty
Falalalala lala la la
I really need a strong hot toddy
Falalalala lala La LAAA!”
From me to all of you, as I spread cheer while Kung Flu Fighting.
