Beware the house where they talk in numbers
103.2, 102 even, 101.8
3 teaspoons for you, 2 teaspoons for your brother, and I get to swallow the pills
You only drank 3 ounces, drink some more
I know you ache. We all ache. Eat your soup.
Forehead kisses are given.
Covers are smoothed.
And I sink into the couch with my blanky
Until somebody coughs or calls out
And the cycle starts again
Sometimes, there's just not enough Advil, or Nyquil
Tomorrow is another day
Please, let tomorrow be another day
And let us escape the house of plague
