A poem called “Sick”


Hey, folks.

I spent the weekend high in Nyquil, in my bed, a piece of tissue stuck up one nostril, trying to write this week’s Blogger Idol assignment.


I didn’t have any brain power to write anything else, and NO sense of humor left. But I wanted to have something for today, so I wrote a little poem.

It’s called, “Sick.”


Hey, sick.

Why such a dick?

I’ve got shit to do,

this is not what I’d pick.

My head feels all fuzzy,

My nose feels quite thick,

One nostril is dripping,

Man, are you a prick.

On the plus side there’s Nyquil,

I’ve become an addict.

It makes me feel tranquil,

And less full of snit.*

*“Snit” is snot + shit. You’re welcome.

I’m not feeling too pretty,

My best look is not this,

“Call the Appalachian Psych Ward!

It’s the escapee from Room Six!”

I can’t create spaces

between my stanzas

time for more Nyquil

says the boss, Tony Danza.

  4. round of applause for working tony danza in there, seriously 🙂 may your germs go back to hell toot suite and your snit stay within your tissues…

  5. Feel better soon – sinus stuff is the worst!

    Two words: Neti Pot. Plus, it would make a great blog post. That was more than two words. Damn.

  6. Being sick sucks
    Like 3-footed ducks.
    You should get well
    And send that illness to hell.
    Go eat some soup,
    Maybe take a big poop,
    Put on a sweater,
    And try hard to feel better.
