Ode to A Bad Cold

By Estelle Sobel Erasmus

A little phlegm, a little sneezing

And now it looks like we are wheezing

I cough and cough and cough again

The tissues are my only friend

Cause nobody in my family

Wants to get too close to me

And really, I know there’s no one to blame

My germs are yucky all the same

So if you think you’re feeling better

Come sniffle with me in this crazy weather

Cause tomorrow its sunny, but snow might come later

And I just want to say, sorry I missed the seder.
