Runny nose...drip, drip
Coughing... hack, hack
Sweat beads on the forehead
ache to the bone.. shiver, shake
Head pounds.. bam, bam
squinty eyes... why won't they open
muffled voices... oh that's my own in my head
Deep breath... argh I can't breath through my nose
Kleenex.... after... Kleenex....
Don't get the cheap kind
Or you will end up with a bright red nose that
Everyone will cringe at when talking to you.
My lovely students
for not covering your mouth
when you sneeze and cough
Then touching .... everything or everyone in sight.
Wash your hands
Cover your mouth
