Sniffles

Sniffles

A Poem by Jacob Clifford
"

Simple rhyme, silly words, and a sucky day

"
Blowing my filthy nose;
it seems like a fire hose!

A mound of dirty tissues shows my infection,
though passersby may get the wrong impression.

Pain in throat and nostril.
The image is rather hostile.

I hope I don't look like Death,
but I'm not holding my breath.

Just when I was done feeling blue,
The universe hands me a big "screw you".

This short little ditty is very imaginative, realistic, & vivid! Just enuf snot to get your point across effectively! *smile* Maybe it's baby-sitting that little bundle of joy nephew, since kids seem to carry more germs & viruses that we loners don't get exposed to very often, so our immune systems may not be as robust as people who are around lots of people & kids & germs all the time! I hope this bout didn't last long & you have put the tissue box away by now! (((HUGS)))

I love the ending because that's just what it feels like too. It sucks.

Nice poem.

Thank you, James. It certainly does suck.
There's nothing worse than those sniffles and the universe's disregard for our well-being. Lord knows I've been there. Lots of water and green tea will help. When we get dehydrated, the mean spirits of sickness and sniffles moves in pronto for their attack.

Besides that, this was fun to read. :)

Done! :)
Silly is right. Nicely balanced though.

"A mound of dirty tissues shows my infection,
though passersby may get the wrong impression"

Very clever!
