The town is full of coughs and sniffles, with moms and dads and city officials warning all to wash their hands! -- A read-out-loud poem for these times

The amazing Ms. Spaghetti Head
With eyes of gold and hair of red
While singing in the morning sun
She twists her hair in a cinnamon bun!

One day there came a thunderstorm
The wind blew in and germs were born
But Ms. Spaghetti knew what to do
She made a batch of special brew!

The town was full of coughs and sniffles
With moms and dads and city officials
Warning all to wash their hands!
To stay at home and make new plans!

So in a pot of bubbling water
Ms. Spaghetti did not falter
Ginger, lemon and honey too!
All tossed in to fight the flu!

A delivery of the most special kind
Was now in order, none left behind!
Upon each doorstep was placed a jar
Gleaming like a morning star!

Soon the storm was gone and the sun shone bright
Families came together and slept through the night
Crying and fear no longer prevailed!
Ms. Spaghetti’s brew had not failed!

For in this sweet and yummy brew
Secret ingredients were the clue
A dash of joy and a pinch of prayer!
Stirred with love for the best health care!

The amazing Ms. Spaghetti Head
With eyes of gold and hair of red
While singing in the morning sun
She twists her hair in a cinnamon bun!

About the Author
Born and raised in California, I moved to Alaska just out of High School where I worked on a commercial salmon vessel. After several years, I relocated to Washington State where I raised a family and pursued a career in Juvenile Corrections. Upon retiring, I began writing about my travels and experiences. Over the years, my writing has expanded to include many venues and topics, from the more personal hardships of my life to the more whimsical children's stories. My journalistic stories have been published in newspapers, on-line sites, as well as included in printed books such as "Chicken Soup for the Soul" and "The Coffee House Chronicles". I have recently enjoyed more public interaction through my writing of "spoken word" at local Jerusalem gatherings.
