Poem: Flu Jab

the strength of the wind
kidded me it was cold
I so didn’t need that coat

oh, so I get two forms to fill in
two people to see
two ways
to cover themselves

I have to pay up front
and me a man of little means

he says common flu
has an avian origin too

in that case is this the queue?
the next one’s for bird flu
