This is a poem by my sister, Janice

DANGER MANIFLU !!!!!!!!!

Of course it isn't "Just a cold"

I'll have to call the Doc,

I looked up "Swine Flu" symptoms

It gave me quite a shock.

I'll have to go to bed now,

While you get "Tamiflu"

But just before you leave the house

I have a list for you.

I'll need some magazines to read,

And maybe you could try,

To find me some on fishing,

Doesn't matter Coarse or Fly

I'll need a box of tissues,

The softest ones with balm,

My nose is sure to get quite sore

A while you're out some ham.

I feel a little peckish.

They do say feed a cold.

And something like this Swine-Flu

Is sure to take a hold.

Perhaps you'd make a jelly.

My throat is getting worse.

And jelly would just slide down

This Swine Flu is a curse.

If you should see some lemons

You could make me a drink

With honey and some whiskey

It might just help , I think.

I think I'll go to bed now

Just switch the telly on.

And see if there's some sport for me

To watch while you are gone.

And maybe get two cream cakes

Brew up when you get back

I'll let you get your coat on

While I just hit the sack.

If this was only just a cold

I wouldn't go to bed

But I'm so hot I think I need

A cold cloth for my head.

YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO THROW IT

I COULD HAVE CAUGHT A CHILL

YOU NEVER SEEM TO SYMPATHIZE

WHEN I AM REALLY ILL.!!!!!!

It's another unfair slur on us. I know when I feel ill it's my wife who insists I go to the doctor, stay off work etc etc.
