It Sucks to be Sick


It sucks to be sick,

Here on the couch

Sniffling, sneezing

Like a tossed away pouch.

My head gets to aching

And I feel as I’m breaking

Spinning, spinning the room goes round

Who put me on this merry-go-round?

It could be much worse

I could be out in the cold

Suffering suffering

Surrounded by mold

I am warm in my bed

Though be it a couch

Softness surrounds me

A place for my head.

I don’t feel so good. Can I stay home? YES!

This is a tribute to all the people who keep their kids home from school when they are sick. Apparently, some parent didn’t feel the need for such precautions at my kid’s school and so she brought it home to us. Thank you for that.

Please be considerate of those around you and if you don’t feel well, stay home! Did COVID teach us nothing?!!! Thanks for listening to my rant!
