Nowhere to Hide

The spring brings on the blooming trees
And flowers everywhere.
I can’t deny the beauty, but
There’s pollen in the air.

I dare not step outside the door,
Inside cannot escape it.
Eyes are tearing, nose is running.
Tempting me to tape it.

A big sneeze turns on the faucet,
I sop it with my socks,
Rush into bathroom just to find
An empty tissue box.

    I absolutely love this--such and accurate description of all us allergy sufferers... we often walk around with toilet rolls attached to our arm :)
