COLD or ALLERGY?

In comes the pollen
Out in the air
Into my nose
Straight thru my nares.

Down thru my windpipe
Into my lungs
Before I could respond
The sneezing’s begun.

Feeling so awful
Such nasal congestion
Wishing I had
A strong decongestant.

Blowing my nose
I cough all day long
Feeling so sick
Something is wrong.

Is it a cold
Or an allergy?
Someone, please help
Someone rescue me.

Cough drops and tissues
Warm blankets and tea
Someone to take
Good care of me.

Hope it will pass
And prove to be
A simple hayfever
Just an allergy.
