Say Achoo!

By Bud Lemire

I know, I know, you already knew
It's that time again, to say Achoo
Itchy eyes, making it hard to resist
I sneeze and blow, and that's not the twist

My nose keeps running, and it's hard to breathe
Just as I'm getting comfortable, I start to sneeze
We won't talk about the state of my hair
When I sneeze, it flies everywhere

I lost my appetite once, had chicken broth instead
I could be Rudolph, because my nose is so red
I call them Hellergies, because you sure go through Hell
But after that I'll need a nap, because it suits me well

What's all that stuff doing in the air
I sneeze and sneeze, and then start to swear
Those allergies, won't give me a break
My nose runs more, with each breath I take

I know there's many remedies, to help us get through
It didn't work for me, but it might work for you
An allergy pill, and maybe it will go away
But it always comes back, the very next day

Let's sneeze together in harmony, and then blow our nose
And shiver our timbers, right down to our toes
I sneeze so strongly, and then let a fart
I think my body, is falling apart

Author Note:

Red eyes that itch, sneezing, running nose, congestion, hard
to breathe. Yep, it's allergy time again. Seems like it zaps
all my energy.
