Thanks to Paul Callus for inspiring me to write this poem. My cold couldn't come at a worse time - my lovely dad is currently in Hospice for respite and I can't visit him:-(

Sneeze, sneeze, sneeze, sneeze Oh I wish my sore throat would ease Razor blades of pain are shredding my throat And I’ve got so much snot I could launch a boat My nose is as red as Rudolph’s and it’s oh so sore I’m feeling achy and miserable this cold I simply do abhor My temperature is high – I’m having a hot flush I look a terrible mess; my hair is in need of a brush Guess I will have to smile when hubby says I’m ‘hot’ Good job he loves me whether I look a wreck or not Jan Allison 21st October 2014
