    The flu and creativity – poem

    The flu and creativity
    they simply do not gel.
    It’s hard to be creative
    when you frankly feel unwell.
    You’re hot and cold and sweaty.
    Your brain is full of mud.
    You try and try for good ideas,
    but every one’s a dud.
    You want to sleep but you can not
    despite so many pills
    One for head, for chest, for nose
    yet none can cure your ills.
    You know you have so much to do
    but you must lie in bed.
    You want to be creative but
    you’re dull as dirt instead.

    Oh, Monique, I love this! The writing of the poem contradicts its message though. You are super creative even when you’re sick!
