It´s funny how body and psyche are interconnected
And yet they step in for each other if needed
Like today, when I´m down with a cold,
But my spirits are quite high.
It´s as if they got it
That I can´t do both at once
The being sick and the being sad
that is, so they gave me a break.
I´m not sad everyday anymore,
But still I´m grateful for a break,
Even though I blow my nose
A hundred times a day
And my mother is nagging about
Rubbing my throat
With salt on my finger
No thanks, I think I got it.
At least I´m not sad.
