The bug

Lost 24 hours,
To the bug,
No one here,
To give me a hug.

I’ve been ill,
And me tummies sore,
I don’t want to be here,

Slept like a lion,
As hot as snake,
Will some one rescue me,
For pities sake.

24 hours with a bug,
Feeling weaker than ever before,
24 hours of misery,
Can’t even leave the front door.

A day of rest is needed,
I sit here all by myself.
Being very careful,
To nurse myself back to health.

Lost 24 hours,
So sick, so poorly,
Never to be retrieved,
What a sad story.
