My holidays turned out to be a troublesome time,
For I was stuck in bed, my face sour like lime,
I had a raging fever and a snot filled cold,
The coughing and snoring was loud and bold,
And to top it all off, I still don't know,
What pills and syrups trickled down my throat.
I was hoping the fever would last one more day,
Just enough for an extra holiday,
Alas! To my utter disappointment,
The sickness seemed to have another appointment.
