Common Cold

1. Go hang yourself, you old M.D.!

You shall not sneer at me.

Pick up your hat and stethoscope,

GO wash your mouth with laundry soap:

contemplate a joy exquisite

I’m not paying you for your visit.

I did not call you to be told

My malady is a common cold.

2. By pounding brow and swollen lip;

By fever’s hot and scaly grip;

By those two red redundant eyes

That weep like woeful April skies;

By racking snuffle, snort, and sniff;

By handkerchief after handkerchief;

This cold you wave away as naught

Is the damnedest cold man ever caught!

3. Bacilli swarm within my portals

Such as were ne’er conceived by mortals,

In some Olympic laboratory;

Bacteria as large as mice,

With feet of fire and heads of ice

Who never interrupt for slumber

Their stamping elephantine rumba.
