When I was a child, I was dubbed the “barking seal” on account of my very loud and very forceful cough.
Alas, the barking seal tends to make an appearance every winter, and double alas, it seems to have returned for the second time this winter!
In the spirit of trying to make the best of things, I have decided to turn my chest-achingly dramatic cough into a source of poetic inspiration.
I humbly present to you a haiku in honour of my winter cough.
Have a great and hopefully cough-free week, everyone!
