Poetry Friday is hosted at Allegro today.
I have an original composition today. It was intended to be a tongue-in-cheek commiseration for those of us who suffer with allergies this time of year, but it ended up sounding a little depressing…maybe because the tune is depressing. But if you can imagine how someone like Carol Burnett would sing it, you’ll have it just about right.
Ode to Hay Fever
— To the tune of the Beatles’ “Yesterday”
cause my eyes to itch and make me sneeze
when the pollen floats in from the trees.
Oh, I’m not pleased with allergies.
I know pollen is good for the bees
And it helps create some other trees,
But it’s not good for me to breathe.
Why this yellow dust on my car, my house, my hair?
I am surrounded with this pollen everywhere!
I love spring,
Listening to all the birds sing,
Warmer days and blooms on everything.
Allergies are the only things
Negative about the spring.
