I have the flu!

Its cold outside

But its colder inside

My bones creak

I feel weak

The cold’s in my head

I can’t get out of bed

My nose is stuffed

My eyes are puffed

My throat is dry

I’m so tired, I think I’ll cry.


I blow my nose

It flows like a hose

It makes so much noise

I have lost my voice

My ribs hurt

Coughing in a spurt

I’m wading in tissues

holding back my issues

I wish I could pull the lever

And put an end to this cold, cough and fever!


I’m so sick

Of feeling sick!
