Protection against health hazards of the season

Whooping cough

Beware the sucking intake of breath that follows the cough.
Count cautiously the heavy thrusts of diaphragm gainst clogged up lungs
Exhausted struggles to breathe may not be asthma, blamelessly uncontagious,
But could be what my mother said I should listen to and learn to recognise.
“When you hear that cough,” she said, “run a mile.”
So adults, please take recent advice, tho it sounds more mild,
“If you have a persistent cough, don’t visit a child.”
