The Best Things In Life Are Free

The best things in life are free
At least that’s what they say
I hope something good comes to me
And I hope that it comes today.

The best things in life are free
I’m sure that’s what I’ve been told
Nothing good is free for me
All I’ve got so far is a cold.

Maybe I’ll get a car from a generous passerby
Or a ship to sail upon the sea
Or a plane to fly in the sky
Life would be grand if they were both free.

Maybe I’ll get a train and chug it along the tracks
Or a spaceship to land upon the moon
I could just sit up there and relax
I really hope I get all these soon.

But for now, I’ll just sit in my bed
And take cold tablets by the score
As an aching pain rushes inside my head
And my throat is itchy and sore.

Author Notes

I’ve had this darn cold for a couple of weeks and just can’t shake the thing, so, I thought I’d try and have some fun with it. I’ll see if that gets rid of it.

    Have you tried mixing your cold medicine with ten or twelve dark beers? Won’t help you feel better, but for an hour or two you’ll THINK you feel better; excellent poem, P. D!

    Hello PD

    A very nice poem here and I like your thinking in it as well.

    I agree with nothing is for free and a cold is for free and thats not a very good thing to get.

    I hope your cold is better by now.

    Very good poem.

      Hi, Ambot

      Thank you, my friend, for your very kind review. Yes, it is better now, thank heavens. Lucky I didn’t get it now with this Coronavirus going around, I’d be thinking it was that lol.

        Sorry, Ambot, I forgot to mention that yes, I agree and a cold is about the only thing I do get for free and that’s for sure and certain. Thanks again.
