Common Cold

It probably isn’t Covid

The lateral flow test said

Even though you can’t stop coughing

And there’s a pounding in your head


At least it’s only a cold

But you’re getting tired of sneezing

And the snot is turning greener

And now you’ve started wheezing


It’s not pneumonia or ‘flu

Cos you’ve had your vaccine shot

It’s just a Rotten Common Cold

With Rotten Common Snot


You take some paracetamol.

You buy more paper tissues.

You try some decongestant but

it gives you stomach issues


Well at least it isn’t Covid

The lateral flow test said

But until you’re feeling better

You might as well go back to bed.
