Sucker Punched

I have no poetry left in me,
Only snot and phlegm.
I’ve been aware for quite some time
That my immune system is very strong.

Which progressed to all the other
Ghastly symptoms of a virus,
You could say I was surprised
To say the least.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!
