Ode to those sneezes that ruin those moments

November 14, 2008

When friends gather around,
To chill or gossip,
One person starts randomly talking,
About something and another one
Accidentally sneezes,
“Bless ya, Bless ya”
And so on, the conversation
Is forgotten or ruined.

When the teacher goes on and on,
About something and a student
Accidentally sneezes,
“Bless ya, Bless ya”
And so on, the explanation
Is forgotten and
The teacher interrupted.

When you are in a place
Like, perhaps where you worship,
Where you are not supposed
To talk, someone sneezes,
“Bless ya, Bless ya”
And so on, the silence
Is broken just like the rule.
