Sniffle. Cough. Hack. Groan.

I need a flu shot,
but do I already have the flu?
I'll wait and see--
it's what I always do.

Do I already have the flu?
I'm death, slightly warmed.
It's what I always do:
Sniffle, cough, hack, groan.

I'm death slightly warmed,
do I call the doc?
Sniffle, cough, hack, groan.
It's big, fat and feverish.

Do I call the doc?
I've got Swine on the brain;
It's big and fat. I'm feverish.
I'm restless. I'm bored and still.

Swine's on the brain.
I'll wait and see--
I'm restless and bored and still
I need a flu shot.

  1. I'm impressed by your poetry skills even when sick!

    I suck at poetry... It's the one thing in literature/english that I never got.
