I got my shot this morning, and it hurt substantially less than the photo would indicate. In fact, I complained so much I didn’t notice anything until they told me to vacate the chair.
I then thought about poetry, which I’m told is NOT a side-effect of the vaccine. Not getting the flu is, though, and so is not giving your flu bug to others…pretty important stuff working in a medical center!
So I thought this up:
After the Democratic National Convention,
It’s time to give your flu shot some attention!
I know – pretty good, right? Or this way:
When the Democratic Convention
You have seen;
It’s time to get
Your flu vaccine!
Perhaps you prefer haiku:
I miss the outdoors
in bed all week with the flu
I should have listened
Think you can do better? I think you can too. Like, WAY better. Please, send me your flu shot poetry and I’ll tweet, Facebook, blog and share with others who need to get the message – getting vaccinated is a smart thing to do, and now is the time!
