Morning Cough

Last Christmas I woke up coughing

And my foster sister asked if I was sick

“No,” I said, “sometimes, that happens.”

I don’t say it’s from a lifetime of smoking

“Oh, ok. That’s just your morning cough.

Ready for breakfast?”

Those were my father’s words

Coming out of her mouth

Oh, it’s just a morning cough

Means there’s nothing to worry about
