Alphabet S – Sick

A to Z Challenge


Theme – ** Kaleidoscope of thoughts**


Streaming eyes, runny nose

tickling sneeze, croaking voice,

Oh! what’s wrong with me I wonder?

Endless tissues drenched in the flow

Aaachooo……there goes one more!

I feel lousy, my head is so sore.

A look at the mirror, I see a ghost.

Aghast, ashen, I look again

only to realise that it’s me!

Hair all messed up

puffy eyes, all watery

painted itself red

wonder why my nose too

is a matching shade!

Aches and pains,

running from head to toe,

I feel so low,

like a hot frying pan,

even under the fan!

I know a visit to the doc is due.

Said he, “You are down with flu” !

The kind doctor put me on a

diet to follow and pills to swallow!

No school and lessons said he,

and I smiled with glee!

For three days I was on a roll

It’s so good for my soul,

with all the pampering and no work

I log on to the network.

TV, books and rest

I spend time in zest.

Oh, falling sick isn’t that bad after all!!

  1. My teenager son will vouch by this poem…. Last time when he was admitted to the hospital for uncontrollable fever, he quoted his stay in the hospital as 3Nights 4days package!!! No studies, books to read and TV… For him that really was a bliss!!!
