Induce the day with caffeine
Mount the start with a smile.
Activate the energy with opportunity
Believe you can run a mile.

Success until 10 a.m.
Suddenly things begin to go wrong…
The smile harder to hold-
The energy now far from strong.

Understand where the problem began…
Suddenly they are less sweet-
Two kids fighting colds-
Now my body is accepting defeat.

With snow outside and a lasting chill
The cold sits in my bones.
Body aches and a runny nose-
At least I am not alone.

Warm a bath and soak the back-
Motivate the system-
Introduce the Zinc and Vitamin C
And wish away the symptoms.
