A poem by my sister
« on: January 08, 2010, 03:15:49 pm »
My sister wrote this - she writes some funny stuff!

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.

Briliant.  It should be on the front of a Get Well Card - They would be sold out.

Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age
