WEEZE, KOFF, ACHOO!

144 words

Spring brings

eye gunk

ear funk

nose junk

What luck?!

WEEZE, KOFF, ACHOO!

Here we go again –

WORST. MONTH. EVER.

Sounds like April and smells like allergies.

Spring brings

sick season

and a million reasons

why I DEFINITELY can’t go to school.

WEEZE, KOFF, ACHOO!

Forget the flowers

remember the tissues

and plug ‘em up these nostrils tight.

Because my nose runs faster than I do

when Mom tries

to plop

those drops

    into my eyes!

WEEZE, KOFF, ACHOO!

Ears pop

sniffles won’t stop

head aches

and makes May the

WORST. MONTH. EVER.

WEEZE, KOFF, ACHOO!

Stuffy

puffy

and gruffy.

I itch for summer

and cry for July.

Spring brings

wind that blows

grass that grows

and pollen that snows.

I whistle when I wheeze

shoot snot when I sneeze

blow boogers in the breeze.

SPRING AWAY, PLEEEEEAAAASE!

WORST. TIME. EVER.

WEEZE, KOFF, ACHOO!

LOL-my Spring in print-love it 🙂 Melissa, you’ve brought the fun to allergy season!!

Love your use of that refrain and internal rhymes, you did a great job painting a picture of the yucky allergy season while still keeping it humorous.

thank you!
