Day 24: April PAD 2013 – Irritable Illness

A man mid-sneeze. Original CDC caption: "...

Irritable Illness

Autonomous action of anatomy,
Brings bellowing breathing, so blustery.
Cantankerous cold – encourage coughing –
Deluge of draining, drastically daunting.

Everything, everywhere, exceptional
Fragile. Fidget in fits, feeling so final,
Grandly gesticulate. guttural groans
Heed healing, holistic, from hands he hones.

The April PAD challenge (Day 24) prompted for an “auto” poem. I decided that breathing was pretty automatic, so I had fun with an abedecrian-type poem that made heavy use of alliteration.
