Green Snot and Jam

By: Rochelle Rickoff Wilensky

I wish I may, I wish I might

May you, damn virus, be gone tonight.

You’ve had your way

With my little one.

You’ve caused her nose to

Run, Run, Run.

Her snot went green

Her cries won’t bend;

I think our nights

Will never end.

It’s one bad cold right to another.

Will G-d have pity on your mother?

I wipe; I soothe; I sing; I pray.

I beg for yet another day.

Where’s sleep? We need so

Desperately

To rest rest rest

And zzzz zzzz zzzzz.

SMASH!

ZAM!

PUNCH!

WHAM!

I hate you most

Green snot and jam.
