To Sneeze or Not to Sneeze

Wed, 05/10/2017 - 11:34 -- han928

To sneeze, or not to sneeze-that is the question:


Whether it’s better for my nasal cavity to suffer


The annoyance of inconsiderate reflexes,


Or to face the tingly tickle of holding it in,


And, by halting, tearing up. To achoo-to be blessed.


No more sneezes; and by being blessed to say they’ve won


The pollen, the dust that triggers the sneeze


That allergies call their own. This is a horrible feeling


To be loathed. To sneeze-to be blessed.


More attention to the scrunched up face of achoos


For in that sneeze I’ll gain the stares of many


With a scrunch of the nose and the worst things on earth


Running down my face.  There’s what makes this sneeze


Not a thing to be missed.
