Get Well Soon

It isn’t very pleasant, to be feeling ill in bed.
with a cough, cold, upset stomach or a banging in the head.
The remedies are offered; ‘slice of toast’? or ‘cup of tea’?
A lovely warm hot water bottle’s just the remedy.
Everyone’s an expert and offers their advice,
that usually involves swallowing something that’s not nice.
‘You need to see the doctor’, all the family will say,
but soon as the appointment’s made, the symptoms go away.
Most everyday afflictions will get better by themselves,
without the potions pharmacists have sitting on their shelves.
So batten down the hatches, have a day of being lazy,
hopefully you’ll wake next morning feeling as fresh as a daisy.
