What Is My Sickness? (Part 1)
I was sick the other day.
by Spock the Vegan
I still am, I'm sad to say.
Headaches and sinuses plugged.
Feel somewhat better when I am drugged.
Went to a doctor and got some pills.
In the middle of the night I got the chills.
Shivering away but didn't feel cold.
Checked my temperature and behold
Ninety-six degrees in the oral way.
Took some aspirins and nasal spray.
Morning came and I felt worse.
Went to another doctor and took my purse.
Keep taking the pills, she said to me,
And drink lots of fluids so you can pee.
Five vials of blood were taken from my arm.
Hurried home so I could stay warm.
The first result said I was lacking salt.
I'm a big salt eater, so It's not my fault.
Later results said Lime disease was negative,
but the test for West Nile virus was positive.
But that was for a past exposure,
Don't know what I have, so I have no closure.
