Stomach Flu

Stomach flu go away, I hate you, you stink!

You make the stomach bubbly and make us lose everything we drink

You make us run to the toilet because we feel like we’re going to burst

You just come whenever you want and your timing is the worst


Stomach flu go away, I hate you, you stink!

Every body part is sore, it even hurts to blink

You make it so we’re hungry but won’t even dare to eat

You make it so we’re freezing yet we can wring the sweat out of the sheet


Stomach flu go away, I hate you, you stink

People say they feel blue, yet every body part is flushed with pink

The couch or your bed are where we get stuck for days

You try to produce a thought, but your mind is such a haze


I feel really terrible, even more than you know…

Oh wait my poor wife is throwing up again, I gotta go!



Screw you stomach flu

You got me too!!

    I feel like I should write “I’m so sorry you’re sick”, but I’m so distracted by the fact that you wrote A POEM (a really, really good poem) that I can’t even! This is amazing!

    Apparently you just need to get to know me a little better Dana! I used to write a lot of poems for your group “poetry” outings. I think we are going to have to make it so you go to one of those!

    Oh no! I know it’s going around. I’ve been lucky so far. It is really amazing that you can write anything at all when you’re sick. I have no excuses anymore.
