I Got The Flu

My head aches and a drowsy dampness pains my sense, and makes me pray these germs stamp less hard on my eyeballs’ scleriae. You tell me how swiftly it flows; this never ending sneezing, this liquefaction in my nose, These lungs that won’t stop wheezing. My skin’s red hot and wrinkled; zillions of germs infest my liver. My tongue’s dried up and crinkled, and I just shake and shiver. You vapo rub my back. What?...ice water enema me! Between these germs and you, you quack, you're my new worst enemy.

Would like to read yours and Martial's. I enjoy 'rewrites' of other poets. It gives me a topic, and it makes me feel closer to what they wrote.
