‘Twas the week before Christmas, with so much to do.
No time for a cold, no time for the flu.
Our stockings aren’t hung like the story suggested.
Because it’s hard to keep up when you’re sore and congested.
Instead I lay nestled all snug in my bed.
Just hoping this pressure will give in my head.
But I’m not all alone, my whole family is down.
And we’re only a few days from more family in town.
These coughs and sniffles are the cause of our clatter.
That and the chills make our pearly whites chatter.
With our tissue supply dwindling and spirits so low.
Will this ruin this year’s Christmas? Oh say it ain’t so.
And then in an instant, a light bulb went off,
But first I must pause to fight through a cough.
I remembered my doctor is like none other than all.
And I knew for a fact that he’d answer my call.
Scratchy and hoarse, I told him my plight.
And it was no surprise that he had great insight.
He told me to rest, take some meds and take care.
We’d be back to normal with enough time to spare.
So now family and Santa can still come our way.
Thanks to our doctor who saved this holiday.
If you’re sick this season, you can look down the block.
