The Deadly Illness

Remember me fondly

For I have succumbed to the plague

My infected children have brought me.

Alas they will survive

Where I will not.

So remember my deeds

as I sit huddled miserably

drinking the only thing my stomach allows.

The tea cools and I look pathetically at said children.

If I was a mere man

and not a mom I would have long since perished.

Alas I instead stand up

and start on breakfast.
