Feeling a Little Puny?
Not quite sick but dull, out of focus?
Lost your joie de vivre?
Been avoiding calls?
Letting voice mail do the work?
Wanting to cocoon?
Pull the blankets over your head?
Thinking the party is over?
Sure that the lights will stay dim?
Well, snap out of it, Dewena!
Remember Mama's sick-a-bed cure,
tomato soup and saltine crackers.
Weigh your priorities.
Count your blessings.
Look at some old Christmas magazines.
Put aside that bestseller and pick up Gladys Taber.
Buy a new perfume.
Pack away the Halloween clutter.
Polish some furniture.
Iron the Christmas tablecloths.
FaceTime with Nora.
Get a haircut, dear.
Get off your butt!
Time is not standing still, Dewena,
and you can't blame the flu shot forever.
Redeem the time.
Now, don't you feel better already?
