I jinxed myself the other day
I was stupid and naïve,
I allowed myself to think a thought
That was too good to believe.
Winter it had passed to Spring so
I thought myself out of harm’s way
So control slipped and I allowed
My brain to itself to say
Cold season is over it is done
And I came out intact.
As soon as that thought occurred
The bugger virus attacked!
It started out with a sore throat
Like swallowing broken glass
And I’ve been in bed for days
Waiting for this to pass.
So here I am trying to write
A poem and a rhyme
Cause I’m going stir crazy
And need something to pass the time.
