A Cold…again!:(



Some felt the earth move.


Others came looking for an  elephant  from the zoo.
It’s me with a common cold.

A virus has on me a hold.

Richter cannot measure the  scale.

The pachyderm in comparision fails.
I sneeze away steadily

Staccato and boom.

Startling people into a swoon

Occasionally sounding doomed.
‘Tis called a common cold.

I firmly disagree.

Its fondness for me leaves me 

uncommonly peeved.
Meets me so often.

Grasps me to its soul.

Leave me alone

Could you cold?
Have sniffled and sneezed from toddler to today.

Histamines to hysterics

Had my fill of their say.

Now please-just go away.
