They're family you see
one week housed
visit as they please
immunes doused

they could stay forever
no possible eviction
as hard as we endeavor
to rid the affliction

our armies reconnaissance 
goes after their own troops
autoimmune intelligence
kicks us with their boots

I am rising from 
my week of misery
coughing done
I'm ready to make history

I do a 5K in the morning
hope I walk across the line 
I will give the golf carts warning
I might need to take a ride


  1. What a great poem! It shows your sense of humor along with what is going on in your home. Dirty rotten germs! I will be thinking of you today and hoping the best for you and for the whole group that will be walking this route for a better future for all of us.

  2. Hope you are all better! Best of luck in your endeavor! And thanks for visiting my blog!

  3. Willow, I do hope you did well with the 5K. Awfu when the 'bug' gets you down, and such inconvenient timing.
