The Flu Trap

It starts with a small cough
Innocuously innocent
A small pitiful itch
Nothing but a small dent

The nose begins to drip
Meaninglessly inattentive
A drip and a drop
Spattering without a motive

A quick sneeze
Faint formulation
Tainting just a little
Minor disposition


All hell breaks loose
A cold snap
Aches and pains
The flu trap!


Winter is a nearing
Fall is here
The season of flu
Comes to appear.
