A Spoonful of Sugar

Clipart image of a spoon, with a substance on it. Food or medcine

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 26 November 2021, hollow.

In distress, I was suffering, on back,
Handed unpleasant meds by the quack,
But his soothing was hollow,
And when doctor said “Swallow”,
I brought all of my supper straight back.
