"My" Cold

by Pujakins

I "have" a cold--or so we say,
in truth the cold has us,
whether it grabbed us shopping
or riding on the bus.

"My" cold is getting better-
I trust not getting worse,
it seems I own what I don't want
descended like a curse.

If I wish to get rid of its symptoms
I'd better disown "my" cold
or I'll probably have it forever--
me and my germs growing old.

Begone stuffy nose, chest congestion,
you're surely not mine any more!
Take the hint, take whatever direction,
and bother me never no more!

Tasha Halpert 1/10/12

"Take the hint, take whatever direction and bother me never on more" Though polite but it sure does send the cold away. Remain in good health, dear Tasha.

Hope your feeling better now. Everyone over here across the pond seems to have it, or has had it. the trouble is, it's taking such a long time to get rid of. Very good poem. Well done Pete. LOL A 10 and a heart.

AHA sounds like an exorcism... Does the cold have your head spinning? If still, you maybe in need of a priest.. Get that cold checked.

Funny nice write... BWP... James...

Haha, I really enjoyed this one, Tasha, especially the last stanza. A cold found me a while back as well and though I ask it to go away it just refuses. Stubborn species, these colds.

    Sometimes all we can do is be patient! Mine took its own sweet time leaving too. Gone now though, thank goodness! I shall take care not to let one catch me again. Hugs and Blessings, Tasha
