My Germ Filled Limerick

My nose is redder than red
The flu has put me in bed
I sniffle and drip
I can’t get a grip
For there’s pure lead in my head

Coughed up a poem or two
That might not make sense to you
The germs and the phlegm
Have covered this gem
Clean it, for it is…true blue!

It’s been a miserable day
Been grumpy all the way
But for this great SOUP
You guys are the scoup
Much better than meds…. I’ll say!

    Girl; you are good. You can write a poem of anything. Thanks for reading my ABC poem. I made a few mistakes, but I went back and fixed them. I have not been feeling good myself. Eat hot soup and drink hot tea. Lucilla

    This is a funny little tribute to P-Soup... Light reading is much more calming (and less damaging to the body) then meds. Be sure to drink lots of tea and rest often! Love the middle stanza the best.

    Oh Ilene....thanks. My immunity seems down lately! I had family come over who were sick. My little sweet niece whom I adore had fever and was coughing. I think all my cuddling...though I was careful...got my sick! Oh well...at least I got to write! Hugs!
