I caught a Silly cold today,
as you can clearly see.
What started as a runny nose,
became a runny knee.

Developing a nasty cough
deep down inside my ear,
and wishing that this ache beneath
my breath would disappear.

A fever from a ‘normal’ cold
might rise to one-o-two,
but something ‘bout this Silly cold
is making me turn blue.

My hair is running marathons;
my feet are now brunette;
I’m shedding hints of Hitchcock
in my shadow’s silhouette.

I wonder how much longer
I will have to deal with this —
I can’t convince my husband
he could cure me with a kiss.
