Two Poems

Tonight I've tried my hand at poetry. Well, I'm not sure I should be so proud to call it that. Anyway, it's words/thoughts put down on paper. It's a sum of my last few months with the kids. Humoring myself...

"Medicine"

Bottles lined up,
One by one.
Green, purple, clear, pink
Medicine.

Who are they kidding?
Flavors of lime and grape,
Smells of bubble gum,
Medicine.

One for coughing, one for sneezing,
One for symptoms too vivid in name
Medicine.

Six days
Three times a day.
You've got to be kidding me.
Medicine.

"Bronchitis Blues"

Coughing,
Runny nose,
Fever,
Bronchitis?

Doctor's office,
Wait.
Diagnosed.
Bronchitis.

Pharmacy.
Liquids and rest,
And medicine, too!
Bronchitis.

Weeks later,
Coughing, sneezing
fever.
Bronchitis?!?
