Poetry Tips: Common Colds

Yes, I was out sick at work and this inspired me to write some poems. Why not use the same opportunity to write bad poetry you can blow your nose on? Or perhaps poetry that laments illness, the absence of co-workers who are out sick, or a spouse who has made it impossible for you to sleep because they are coughing all night. The common cold is back to haunt us, why not designate some feel-good, or feel-bad poems about it?

Good luck to all who try it, please drop in again next week…
