“You shall not pass!”
The flu bug is invading my personal space.
Like a dragon nipping at my toes.
It comes within arms reach and I beat it back with a big stick.
So far I’ve been successful for it backs away with every swing or stomp I take in its direction.
I will not let it defeat me.
I will not let it devour my innards as it’s been doing with friends and family…
who continue to fall,
I have bathed in a bubbled filled font, donned my battle armour of flannel, drunk peppermint tea elixir and consumed magical ginger tablets
So far with success.
I expect the battle to be a phlegmy one,
but as I crawl into bed at 7:30pm,
I am determined to be the victor.
