Topic: Achoo (04/11/13)

TITLE: A Sneeze

A sneeze is just a sneeze
Unless it makes you freeze
The sound can be as quiet as a mouse
Or loud enough to shake the house

When someone lets one out
You can hear everyone shout
Bless you, bless you, gesundheit
That’s the way you spell it all right

Good health is what you wish real quick
When they sneeze it may mean they are sick
We say those words automatically
`Cause if we don’t we feel guilty

The simple sound should be “achoo”
But mine comes out like “wa-whoo”
If you’re around you’ll want to take cover
`Cause my sneezes are like none other

It’s time to cross my legs when I say “achoo”
The force is so strong it makes me boo-hoo
I am so embarrassed I want to hide
I just pray I’ve some tissues at my side

So remember when you hear that sneeze
You may want to get down on your knees
And ask the good Lord to be protected
From all those germs that were ejected

Enjoyed your verses ... nicely done, and keep a tissue handy.

You made my nose twitch with an itch just reading this. Although your rhyme is fine, I suggest trying to match the lines. Experiment with a variation of patterns of rhyme and rhythms. Poetry is like a puzzle - making the words fit just right. Keep it up!

This is a nice little bit of fun, but from your sneeze I sure will run!
