Title: Flu Review

The Reverend Cuthbert Pettigrew
lay in bed with Asian flu,
his medication, hitherto,
prescribed for him by Doctor Hugh.


Visiting poor Pettigrew
were Sue & Pru & Stu & Lou,
the Saturday before they flew
to Singapore as cabin crew.


The air within the plane was blue,
fresh filtering was overdue
and so the epidemic grew
on passengers & pilots too.


The Reverend Cuthbert Pettigrew
and Sue & Pru & Stu & Lou
and passengers & pilots too
propelled the flu from whence it blew.
