Rhinovirus

A Poem by Jay Steitler
"

A poem about a terrible night with a cold(er, I mean MAN FLU)

"
Rhinovirus, you're such a pain in the a$$!
You come, and start your brillowpad throat 
scratch.

Once I feel like I've eaten a woolen sweater,
You present me with passages, stuffy & swollen!

At night I stay alone, 
all suffocated and prone.

With sweat my sheets you doth saturate,
so that dawns early light I pray for and can't wait!

Yes, Rhinovirus you certainly are a pain in the a$$!
But if history's right, this soon too shall pass.

Smiling here....an ode to the cold? Yes, it can be quite a pain...and not just in the a*S! I enjoyed the rhyming in this and the fun way you tried to make light of feeling sick. Feel better soon. Remember to drink plenty of liquids! Lydi**
