Ode to my Immune System

Oh knights in shining arm or leg
My chest is filled with thee
For I have never had to beg,
Or kneel on one knee.

When pestilence is pestering
You've come to rescue me,
If preemptively I'm fighting,
Or peaceably asleep.

In war you are intelligent
And nimble with your fleet.
Your fevered fire’s competence
Assures a swift defeat.

Come wind and snow and rainy bog
I look to you with pride
My knight in shining arm or leg
That saves me from inside.

So here I languish in my bed
With Netflix on replay.
I’m waiting in my castle, love
Please come and save the day.
