Hay Fever!

It’s all very well when it’s sunny
The weather is certain to please
But I do not think it is funny
When pollen decides I should sneeze

The warmth is decidedly pleasant
The views of the ladies are too
But when lots of pollen is present
I find that I’m saying ATCHOO

So though I’m a big fan of summer
When cricket’s not ruined by rain
The itch in my nose is a bummer
And red achy eyes are a pain

I drip in my drops in the morning
And carry some tissues all day
But here comes your two minute warning
Explosions are heading your way!
