I should probably point out that the last few days, vomit has just about consumed my life, so I really had no other choice than to write about it. When you think about it, it really is quite a phenomenon. They always say write about what you know and for the last few days with sick boys, this is what I have known. Thankfully, they are all well and better now, but it was rough there for a while, hence my ode to the power of vomit.
An Ode to Vomit
Vomit, your are a vile and disgusting thing
Whether on the floor, in a pot or on the toilet ring
You sink, slither and splatter everywhere
Sometimes you even end up in my hair
Nothing I use seems to clear your smell
Although my nose is so assaulted I really can’t tell
Sometimes you are quite chunky and colorful
But you are never welcomed and always stressful
I fight you off with buckets of disinfectant spray
But still you live to fight another day
I am finally able to get you to go
But you fought well my worthy foe.
