Poem Friday – Nothing Like A Pill to Rid One’s Ill’s

Nothing Like A Pill To Rid One’s Ill’s
Author Lesley Voth

Do you know I have been sick in bed
Feeling lousy like someone is pounding in my head

Well that was ok I got over it in a week
Felt pretty good, fantastic so to speak

So good in fact I celebrated with a drink a cigar
Oh boy, felt so good, smooth so it was quite bazaar

That next morning I was coughing, it was not a pretty sight
Not much sleep, my chest felt like someone was sanding in there all night

Yep that flu what ever it was is back again
I guess only me, no one else to blame

Bit grumpy I am, certainly not nice to be around
Dave my husband, hiding, quite hard to be found

Now, I am a really healthy, no pills for me, sort
Well I have to tell you, my idealism right now has fallen a little short

So off to the doctors I went today
Told her I want it gone, straight away

She gave me some tablets, some killer pills
Hopefully it will quickly take care of my ills

It is a long time since I have had the flu
Makes you appreciate a healthy body that is true

So hopefully tomorrow I will be feeling good
Feeling all healthy and ready to go as I should

You can consume all those vitamins, a battle uphill
But there is nothing like the good old Anti Biotic Pill
