A poem for my sick little bub

snore snore 
rattle rattle 
cough cough 
whimper whimper 
cough again 
wake wake 
cry cry 
poor little sick baby 
cuddle cuddle 
nurse nurse 
sniffle snuffle 
trying to breathe 
bite bite 
(yelp yelp) 
cry cry 
soothe soothe 
sniffle snuffle 
wipe away 
nurse some more 
settle settle 
falling asleep 
snore snore 
for a wee while more…
I wrote various drafts of this in my head at 2am, and 3am, and 4am, and 5am when I was up nursing. Poor little Bee, I hope you get better soon.

As a side note, when I showed this to Mr Banya this morning, he thought that my poem sucks. He reckoned he could write a better one in 5 seconds. Here’s what he came up with:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I love you JJ
But I’m sick of all the poo

So – what do you think? Which one is better? Could you come up with something better?
