The only thing missing was the fun,

I got this tired – like a prize I’d won.

I didn’t rake leaves in the yard,

or stay up all night playing cards,

or paddle a canoe going upstream,

I got this tired absolutely free!

I didn’t drink whiskey or beer,

I got this hangover without the cheers.

I wasn’t exposed to the flu,

But running a fever is what I do.

I didn’t eat one piece of cake,

But I sure got the belly ache.

I got these trophies absolutely free,

They are bonuses this disease has given me.
