Ill Wind - a Poem


Ill Wind

The icy wind’s ill affect

Blowing down and around his neck

Will have a lasting effect

For the ill wind has no respect

Not for anyone not one fleck

The ill wind will not blow

When there is rain, sleet or snow

It is disguised so you won’t know

And hit you hard where it doesn’t show

Until the fever’s heated glow

The ill wind’s latent call

Is meant to bring us to our knees

You will know you have been hit with the first sneeze

Carried by the germs on the ill wind’s breeze

The ill wind will blow right into the heart of you

It will make you ill

And chill you too

You will not know

Until the ill wind is through with you
