Thou blight me with thy rasping throat
Running eyes and deepened croak
Leaking face and aching arms
And others of thy wondrous charms
A cough that starts and doesn’t stop
A sneeze! A sneeze! A sneeze and hop!
A stinging eye in a shade of red
An insatiable yearning to go to bed.
Thou blight me with a thumping head
As I said.
Thou blight me.
And tonight I rest.
For tomorrow is another day.
I’ve come down with a shocking cold today, goodness knows where from, although I think it has been brewing in the background for a couple of weeks now. I’m completely shattered, so I’m switching off for now… having an early night.
I must apologise once again for not visiting or replying to comments, but I will get round to it in due course!
