One morning I woke up,
With redness on my chest.
It didn't matter what it looked like,
Because my mood was the best.
Reading through my birthday wishes,
I ignored the rash.
Later that day I realized...
It, I shouldn't have scratched.
Turns out it was shingles,
that was paining me.
It also made my body jingle,
Until I put on the calamine cream.
Antivirals did the trick,
While I was told to stay home from work.
However, I didn't feel sick
So I went on a long bike ride and got sunburnt.
But have no fear,
Because I'm doing much better now.
Back to work this week,
my doctor finally allowed!
