WHAT A … A … A … A … CHOO! STUPENDOUS SPRING

WHAT A … A … A … A … CHOO!

STUPENDOUS SPRING

(136 words)

You'd think I'd adore

all the flowers and trees—

but no, in the Spring,

they incite me to sneeze.


They are beautiful, sure,

but induce a gross mess.

Can't you see how my nose

is a source of distress?


It is swollen and red,

and I just want to stay

far away from the flora 

that spew stuff my way.


I know it's dramatic,

but what can I do?

Should I wear a big helmet

to help with the goo?


But even with THAT,

lots of pollen would creep

slowly under my chin

and would STILL make me weep!


When Summer arrives

I will clap with delight.

I will hike in the forest,

less pollen to fight.


Until then I'll hide

in my house looking out

at the Springtime in bloom—

to save my poor snout!
