Catching a Flu

A sneeze in the office

A wave of air

Carries the virus

Through the corridor

Above and across my colleagues

Straight to my desk

Or was it

A sneeze in the office

Early in the morning

A harmless conversation with the flu victim

When I caught the flu?


Swelling of the eyes

Pain of the throat

Drowsy head

Sleepy thoughts…

All day all night

Now at the doc’s

Who can’t catch the flu and

Take it away

But to administer meds

That will fight those virus in me


Aching sleepy me

Cant wait to recover and be well again
