A Sonnet To Sneezing

14 lines –

Devotees of the sneeze are polite society refugees

They think a sneeze is nothing more than a wet breeze

But, as you and I know, the explosion is a bacterial bomb

And when it’s in your face it’s hard to remain calm

Students of sneezing advise you do so on your elbow

and other ways that are considered apropos

But sometimes there’s nothing you can do

and a sneeze escapes like a lion from the zoo

Because you sneeze doesn’t mean that you have a disease

it could mean a lot of things like an allergy to cheese

I know people who every time they sneeze they have to pee

Sometimes it’s a humorous sight to see

In summary, we all really should agree

that sneezing is a fact of life in any company
