Atchoo

Atchoo
Can’t stop sneezing

Coughing and wheezing
Can’t stop blowing

Nose is running and glowing
Can’t stop sweating 

Fever’s well and truly set in
Can’t stop aching

Feels like my head is breaking
Burning up 

Confined to my bed
Soggy tissues 

Filled with gunk from my head
TVs on 

But it’s painful to watch
Sleep eludes me

Cause I keep waking up
I lie in bed 

And wait for it to pass 
No appetite

Just fluids en masse
Paracetamols

A hot toddy here and there
Whiskey, lemon, honey 

Is all that I can bear
Flat on my back

Until I’ve won the fight
Just got to surrender

When you’re feeling this shite.
