"THE COMMON COLD"
Auto-suggestion! Oh what power!
I write at an ungodly hour,
Waking in the depths of night,
Feeling the urge to blog and write....
And what do I find? A Blog suggestion
To write about.....not Indigestion,
But the Common Cold! In a word 'Achoo!'
What a terrible thing to do!
To send infection via a blog!
I wouldn't do it to a dog!
Over the oceans, through the air,
Thousands of miles! It's just not fair!
As soon as I read the fateful word
A reaction very strange occurred!
Almost at once my throat felt sore!
It hadn't felt like that before!
And now my eyes are feeling weepy!
Auto-suggestion! Very creepy.
Oh! There's a sneeze! Oh help! I knew it!
That word 'Achoo!' has led me to it!
A headache now! It's getting worse!
I almost cannot write this verse!
Far, far away, the guilty one
Doesn't know the harm she's done!
Her suggestion has hit its mark,
Here in Australia! Here in the dark!
Oh dear! I'm feeling really ill!
I think I'd better take a pill!
Tomorrow I will feel half-dead!
Goodnight! I'm going back to bed!
