I Got The C – Part II

with the C comes quarantine
friends offered the advice
to measure my temp, daily twice
how long has the last time been?

we are stocked up on meds
stuff like asperine and advil
which i gladly take at will
when a head ache extends

still, a thermometer we had none
not since the baby days that is
yet a must have for diagnosis
i therefore asked my oldest son

he came home with a sly grin
after he bought me a thermometer
'this one even has a beeper
but ... you have to insert it in'
