The Sickness Spreads

As my throat continues to scratch

I hurt more and more.

My body aches

and the chills do not balance out the fever.

In the morning

I will still be the chauffer to the one

who passed on this nasty virus to me.

A side effect

of the job and all the dangers it entails.

Now if only

my body would allow me to sleep.
