Man Flu

clipart of a box of tissues

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 27 January 2021, issue.

I was battling with flu uncontrolled,
When my missus came down with a cold,
With no thought for my issue,
She said “pass me a tissue”
So I passed one of mine, two weeks old!

      1. I know the feeling. So, often when you want some peace and quiet people come to chat or something. My parents seem to know just when I’m starting to write and choose that moment to come see me, grrr! lol
