Ode to a Cold

23 comments

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 well.

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!

  1. Chemtrail flu…..It’s going around the country and everybody is suffering! I hope you’re better quick but many have a heck of a time kicking it. Look at prenin. Good luck TL, hope your immune system is strong. Stay in bed and drink tea….Sending wishes your way for a quick recovery….VK 🙂

    1. Thanks for the heads up, VK. Several folk I know have this, but we here in Cheshire have this odd recurring cold which flares up every two weeks or so. Most odd. Hopefully this what I have is the end of it!
      And thanks for the good wishes! Always appreciated!

      1. Hi VK! 🙂

        Five weeks was enough for anyone! 😦

        Looks like I had flu for the first four weeks, then picked up a cold off a taxi driver! 😦

        I lost 5lbs, so not all bad news! 🙂

        God Bless!

        Prenin.
