‘Twas the day after Christmas
and all through the house
the noses were sneezing
and coughs were leaving the mouths.
The flu had visited
and been gone for a few
but this, these symptoms
were something entirely new.
No fever, so the question was asked,
“Are we really even sick?”
But then as we all thought,
in unison said, “We feel just so ick.”
The tissues were placed
by each bed and chair
in the hopes to limit germs
that threatened to travel here and there.
Spraying the house with cleansing things
and of course handwashing galore
It was hoped that this “bug” wouldn’t live
to bring us down one day more.
In the meantime we rested and did what we could,
even though things this Christmas didn’t go as they should.
As I wandered through and wished all a good night,
I said to myself as I turned off the lights,
“Tis the season
to be sneezin’!
Merry 2nd day of Christmas and
to all a day that is pleasin’!”
Love to all. Fingers crossed all are on the mend–in your house and ours!
