**WHEN YOU CATCH THAT FEVER! !
**WHEN YOU CATCH THAT
When the body temperature exceeds the normal, -
The doctor says that you have got the fever on
High fever can get you into a delirium,
And you could get admitted in the ICU!
One must guard oneself from the summer’s sun,
Take precaution from exhaustion and heat!
Wear those dark glasses and use a parasol,
And sun-tan lotion makes the picture complete!
Prevention is half the cure, is a saying which
is very true!
With cool butter milk and iced lemonades,
You can keep that heat off you!
Now there is another type of fever, more potent
than that ‘swine flu’!
It can strike you anywhere and at any time,
And you cannot take adequate precautions too!
When your heart starts to beat faster and a fever
rages all inside,
You get melancholic and delirious, -
When someone calls the doctor by your bedside!
When no temperature gets recorded, -
And the doctor looks concerned;
For you have caught the love’s fever, -
O! What a lovely way to burn!
