Common Cold

My daughter won a speech contest with her rendition of this about 20 years
ago. We love Ogden Nash!!

"Common Cold"

I think it was a very unique poem. It is very funny and interesting to
read. I do agree there were a lot of literary elements in it and it was a
great poem for people to write about.

Whether how to define serious cold, or it is a virus and when thus there is
a sense to address to the doctor? Or it is possible to lay simply at home,
being treated most? WBR LeoP

The copyright holder is by law
entitled to project his jaw,
state his case as his lawyer saw.
But there are those who see his greed
as callous and would pray he heed
a higher law for those in need
of Ogden's wit and careless folly
Go take your law and selfish ways
and stick it where it does not pays.

I think it is a great poem. Full of literary devices. The poem is
overflowing with creativness. I am using it for a ENGLISH project i am in
9th grade.
thanks Ogden,
Alex
