Really Awful Codes id Dozes


 

‘It is only a cold in the head’
Is a statement that, up with, I’m fed,
Whereas a dose of ‘flu’
Only lasts a day or two,
Colds go on for weeks, so ‘tis said.

They scoff when colds take you to bed,
Even though you would rather be dead,
Meanwhile coughs and sneezes
Or horrible wheezes
Simply will not respond to a med.

When all in the family are led
To having to having their noses bright red
And getting all cranky
While holding a hanky
Such path one would rather not tread!

  1. I haven’t used a hanky for 65 years or more, I find them hideous, nasty things; I wonder at those that blow their noses into them, fold them as if they contained a precious treasure,and stuff them in their pockets.
