Puffing Away



Doctor determined I've got bronchitis Use to think bronchitis was serious It's serious enough but certainly not fatal Once thought it could make you delirious Don't get me wrong, I'm not feeling that great It's like my whole system is in a knot I'm certainly not one to suffer from illness Quite healthy I always have thought Guess age is finally catching up with me Free from illness all of these years Thought I was some kind of special being Sure got it wrong, that's clear It's not going to threaten my life I'm told But it's terribly annoying I'll say Puffing away every morning, noon, and night No peace, no relief all the day Good thing the prognosis is I'm going to live If I follow the doctor's directions Take the pills that she prescribed for me Till I'm good and rid of the infection © Jack Ellison 2013

    Oh Jack... Get Well Soon... From my crazy family... Loved your poem but will surely worry. Your friends... Carol, Hubby, and of course Dragon... PS. John Wulf just sent me a message... It's raining where he is...so had to say hi!
