I hate colds

Entry for January 04, 2008 magnify

I hate colds
What is it about a stuffy nose
Which makes you feel so dumb
Become a klutz
A buffoon
Without grace

I hate to sniff
Or snuffle
And most to cough
I loath my need for a tissue
Watering eyes
Breathing open mouthed

Gulping air
Like a guppy in dirty water
Feeling so unclean
Because of all those germs
Fleeing even me when I sneeze

I really, really hate colds
