Pandemic

Mar 11, 2010 by

 

This morning I took the day off
‘cos I feel really sick.
First I sneeze and then I cough,
it must sound quite horrific.

~~

My throat feels rough
and my chest is wheezing.
First I huff, and then I puff,
then another bout of sneezing.

~~

Next I sweat, then I shiver,
I have a pounding head.
My nose runs like a river,
I’m definitely staying in bed.

~~

I know that I have the ‘flu,
the symptoms are quite specific.
Other people have it too,
it’s quite an epidemic.

~~

Now it’s really taking hold,
all across the bailiwick.
Islanders are all being told,
We’re in for a pandemic.
