Ode to my Cough

Cough, Cough

Please be off.

Please do your best

to vacate my chest.


You steal my air.

You cause me to swear.

I would like to breathe

But you make me seethe.


Inside my head

I’m full of dread

I’ve had it with you

I say Shoo! Shoo!


Just to be clear

You’re not wanted here:

Cough, cough

Please,  eff off.

    I love you, Leanne. I’m affirming your perfect health everyday. Don’t give up. Stay with your vision: “I don’t know what happened,” says Dr. Lungs, “But the cancer is just GONE!”
