An ode to the common cold

Why is it that the common cold

Makes you feel so rough?

You dose yourself with lemon drinks,

And horrible cough stuff.

Barking here and sneezing there,

And moaning that you’re ill.

Until everybody’s fed up and tells

you,go and take a pill.

Luckily they don’t last long,

And soon you’re back on top.

Thankful that the cold has gone.

No more fevered brows to mop.
