Sick


Flat on my back
All sick and blue
Long cold days of winter
With nothing to do

Pedisone, levofloxacin,
Cheratussin too
Blankets and tissues
What's a fellow to do

Snow's on the ground
More on the way
Shovels in the shed
There it will stay

Lucky am I
To have the woman I love
She helps make me strong
Gives me lots of hugs

Tired of the dark
Boring T.V.
Just want to whine
Oh, woe is me.

    Don't be too woeful Lawrence, you still have your partner and that is worth more than gold. Nice little poem, the Winter makes us all feel gloomy. (Report) Reply

Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
