Tuesday Writings No.22-Ginger Plague

Prompts this week:Prickles, taste, hives  

Ginger Plague
At Christmastide
The smell of ginger
Is in the air
I love the taste but it hates me
Ginger gives me
More than hives
My throat prickles
Making it hard to soon breathe
My epi-pen I’ll soon need
Thank goodness for modern science
When every corner I turn
There’s ginger cookies
Ginger drinks hot and cold
Ornaments and gingerbread houses
Displayed proudly you see
Avoidance is impossible
It seems.
