I woke up this AM early, unable to breathe through my nose. When I sat up, it turned on the faucet of mucus. This, in turn, came out of my head.
I like sunshine but I hate spring
My tonsils itch, and my eyes frickin’ sting
can’t sleep at night, cuz my nose does drip
Don’t say “flowers are so pretty!”
I don’t give a rip.
Give me late summer and swimming holes
Give me autumn with jack O’lanterns and spooky souls
Give me Winter white and cold.
No pollen to sniff
No sneezes to unfold
I hate spring
The flowers of the season
There is no other reason
but to blow out pollen with my sneezin’.
Eyes swell shut
the word is “Ugh!”
So I don’t do spring
I always feel forlorn.
Give me something
So I don’t snore like pants being torn.
Just don’t let me wake up,
Wake up until it’s September morn.
