Here's what I've got: a bit of verse for a change.
I'm kinda thinking not.
And so, to escape my allergies,
I'm going to be an astronaut.
No more pollen, no more spores--
no more uncontrollable sneezes.
I'm hitching a ride on a rocket
until the onslaught eases.
Of course I'll miss the flowers,
and seeing the verdure of spring,
but, oh, to have one day of peace,
I'd give up 'most ev'rything.
So good-bye earth, and mom, and dad,
good-bye warm sunny days.
I'm not sure when I'll be back,
but for now, I'm off and away.
It doesn't have the smoothest meter ever, but give me a break--my sinuses are killing me this weekend.
