To Your Health
By Shirley Luper

Infection's just a sneeze away
When you have the flu.


Someone sneezed on me today
And now I'm sneezing, too.


I sneezed when going through the room
Feeling low and grim.


I knew then without a doubt
I'd passed it on to him.


I thought about that sneeze
And all that could be hurt.


 A sneeze from flu-- from me to you
Could go around the earth.


So if you have to sneeze
Don't leave it unprotected.


Let's stop this epidemic
Before the world’s infected.
