Poem #32 of 365

Snort with impunity
sneeze effervescently,
we all have allergies
either that or a cold.

We wheeze like great windfalls
and cough like choking payphones
we must be sucking on luden's
either that or a brandy.

All the snotty people are dreadfully breathing
and rubbing their nose holes with zest
we cling to our soggy old hanky
and new tissues all ready to go.

We compete like flutes in the band hall
tooting and honking like woodwinds
but our windpipes could use a deep cleaning
or a visit to that old windbag, the doctor.

(i'm deeply congested and phlegmy this week)
