A Ruddy Zombie

Some days I wake up smiling Today's sure not one of those days Caught some kind of a flu bug Wanna sleep the whole day away Feel like a ruddy zombie Got no drive, no get up and go No longer a reason for living I've come to the end of the show Hide the pills and the liquor Get rid of the knives and weapons Feel like harming little animals Looking for bugs to step on Normally charming and lovable But when bugs invade my body Don't handle the invasion very well This nasty man gets really snotty Eventually I'll get back to normal To my sweet and lovable self Until then, please bear with me Don't feel like a big happy elf! © Jack Ellison 2012
Have no fear... wrote this a while ago. Today I'm fit as a fiddle and feeling fine!

    The concept is always inept Jack, at times such as you described in your posey one must call on the the inner precept self to combat Mr Jeckyle (spelling). Smile! Thanks for you comment. Agape, Moses

    Hate those days when one feels like something folks would get mad about stepping in. Glad you're back feeling witty instead of sh....

    Now let me see... what could possibly rhyme with witty and starts with "sh"? Hmmm

    I hope you feel better... Get Cathy to tuck you in... She'll take good care of you. PS Remember the roses afterward with another romantic poem for her... After all... You may owe her if she catches anything, after caring for you.
