I am partaking in a marathon today.

Not a typical kind of marathon

and definitely not an enjoyable one.

Reach,

grab tissue

wipe.

Reach,

grab tissue

wipe.

Sneeze, sneeze, sneeze

Reach,

grab tissue

wipe

and blow.

Cough, cough, cough

Whine, whine, whine

Complain, complain

complain to anyone that will listen.

No one wants to listen,

but I complain anyway.

I need the cold illness ICU,

but there are none.

So I continue all alone

to survive

my cold illness marathon.

Oops!

Sneeze, sneeze, sneeze

Reach,

grab tissue,

wipe.

Reach,

grab tissue,

wipe.

Type, wipe, type

Wipe, type, wipe!

Ugh! Shrug, Ugh!

Darn cold bug!
