Spring is the season of Pollen
Relentless attacks without pause
Fluttering into our faces
Sneaking under closed doors.
My face is terribly swollen
My nose no longer drips
Instead it oozes like molasses
Until it inevitably slips.
My eyes are perpetually itchy
My throat and ears scratch and burn.
My head is painful and heavy
For pity’s sake don’t make me turn.
I can’t eat I’m really too nauseous
And full of muck oozing down my throat
I can’t drink I feel I am drowning
Now I’m chilled and need a coat.
And Pollen continues through Summer
When the sun tries to bake us alive.
I’m sick of Global Warming
In a New Ice Age I’d thrive.
Pollen, I have to tell you
I only eat sugar and meat
Kill the vegetarians
They’re the enemy to beat.
