My Cold ... a lament


Three days now, still slobbing around
In bed, on sofa in dressing gown
No energy and so much to do 
I guess I'm thankful it's not 'flu'
I sniff .. the cough just makes me ache
Why am I in this sorry state?

I sleep, I wake and lose the plot
Where am I? why am I so hot?
Was that a film? the telly's on
The postman knocked ... oh no he's gone
The days and nights merge into one
When will this pass? I want it gone

YES I'm warm ... now please don't fuss
I'm in no mood for all that stuff
And PLEASE don't bother me with trivia
My nose is sore, where is the Nivea?
World affairs and other issues
Are insignificant when I've no tissues

And I remain a sorry sight
Bored and listless .. what a fright
Who is that woman? whose reflection
In the mirror? on closer inspection
I think these glasses can not be mine
I'll find some others and will be fine

Awwwww ... thank you Malcolm

I do need MAXIMUM sympathy at these times yes

Actually things are a bit better today but I'm still falling asleep and lacking in energy.

Bored? With the whole of Murgs to entertain you. There's a lot to take in, you know - 20948 messages for instance! (20948+1 by now)

Boredom is an encouraging sign ... it means you're not quite miserable enough to lie with nose burrowed in bed and the worst is over.

Except you feel wrecked.

I feel for you poor lady Ratchet,
You should not feel obliged to catch it.
Let the little virus go
Out into the white white snow.
May be it's natures way of showing
Assisted by the wind that's blowing
How evolution might take hold
Consign us to the kerchiefs fold,
But there will come a time we know
That dribbly bright red noses blow,
And that will pass and swiftly steer
To healthier times don't you fear!

Get yaself right off the couch
Don’t hand around and be a slouch
Knock back a bourbon or three
That will make the bugs just flee
 
Rub the vick all over chest
We can help with vick we’re best
Then a massage from the feet
At the thighs you’ll feel real neat
 
It’s really just mind over matter
We don’t mind this idle chatter
When killing viruses you see
You need to sacrifice the “ME”

cold 

well you've certainly attracted a lot of attention both at  home and overseas - how do you do it?
