There once was a girl allergic to life

When I told my partner the Daily Prompt was ‘Allergic’, he laughed wholeheartedly out loud. Here’s why…

I happen to have a lot of allergies & these sunnies are my besties all year round!

My family & friends think it’s quite funny. Even I think it’s pretty laughable to wear sunglasses in the dark & inside because my eyes are puffed up!

Anyways, always one to take advantage, here’s my little poem about it!

There once was a girl allergic to life,

Dust, pollen, feathers & even to wildlife.

It affected her face & made her sneeze,

Made her ears itch & made her wheeze.

She wore sunglasses in winter & in the rain,

To hide her puffy eyes again & again.

She had shares in Piriton & Benedryl too,

Every month buying 50 packets of tissues.

But still all year round she wears those sunnies inside,

Because she’s the girl who’s allergic to life!

  1. Love the shades! I have to wear shades like everywhere, maybe not so much in the dark but in stores and stuff because of my light sensitivity. Causes huge headaches! 😦 So I kinda feel your pain, but not allergy-wise. Lol. I think I lucked out genetically, my dad’s side have really bad sinus problems and allergic to everything like pollen etc, but it passed onto my brother and not me. 😛 I really like the poem too! 🙂

  2. Sorry about the allergies.
    I LOVE that first picture you put on this post, though. It is mesmerizing – cosmos are one of my most favorite flowers. It brings the promise of spring, which…I guess isn’t so great for some. (you can tell I don’t have allergies) My husband has terrible allergies, though. He started using that steroid nasal spray a few years ago – it’s been a God-send. He doesn’t start the day with a bout of sneezing anymore.

    • Thank you so much, that’s so lovely of you. They’re so pretty aren’t they? I can admire from a distance hehe! Does he? Good tip! I’ll be onto that this year!


  3. Great poem, loved it 🙂 I used to be allergic to all pollen and a bunch of other things but lately I’m only really suffering from smoke but I tend to wheeze rather than sneeze – not sure if that counts as allergy or asthma tho, lol!
