A viral intruder, living inside you see

Invaded my space, weeks ago, for free

It challenged and scared the bejeezies out of me

All comfy and cozy, a long stay came to be.

 

“Sick ‘n tired of being sick ‘n tired,” I say

Lay down, try to sleep, not happenin’, no way

Get to the clinic for an in-depth x-ray

Or this pest will continue its’ menacing hey day.

 

Coughing, sneezing, wheezing, I vent

Are natural remedies making a dent?

Expecting more, for the money I spent

Wasn’t that flu shot aimed to prevent?

 

Feel bad for being temporarily absent

Can’t call, can’t zoom, can’t see a client

No work, no people, missing a major event

A sign to retire? A signal well meant?

 

Pain, then headache, what could be next

A friendly hello, a heartwarming text

Life can lift us, or leave us perplexed

Like this bug, and all its effects.

 

It’s time to strengthen, return to the flow

Shop and ski and bake homemade dough

Holidays, bright lights, the city’s aglow

The beauty of winter, festivals and snow.

 

Turmeric, lemon, tea, and honey

Ingest it all, when your nose is runny

Most important: keep your disposition sunny

Best meds: watch anything funny.

 

Thank you, I’m grateful, you all cared and called

Left feel-better-soup in the hall, where I crawled

This load of germs, that I’ve carried and hauled

Has come to an end, virus un-installed!
