Sniffle! My nose runs at the rate of a high speed train.
Creak! My back aches when I move… ooh the pain.
Groan! As I stretch to get up to even walk…
Splutter! As I cough when I really want to talk.
Choke! As I swallow my ‘flu pill’ the wrong way
”Gah!”! Is the only word the after-taste lets me say.
Sigh! As I meander to settle in my bed…
Clunk! As I lie back, and abruptly hit my head.
Yawn! As I lie there and hope to go to sleep
Aah! As I feel myself relax, nice and deep.
Ouch! As I try to turn and lie on my side
Choo! As I take yet another sneeze in my stride.
Mmmm! As I’m so relaxed I finally drift off…
Bzzz! As the alarm wakes me with a start
…And a cough.
I’m feeling a bit like a zombie at the moment – externally, that is! Internally I’m still feeling good. This is very confusing for my Inner Zombie as he doesn’t know whether he’s coming or going. Here’s to a good night’s sleep… without the annoying alarm at the end of it!
