Winter Tonics

With all the winter sniffles
You can hear the chemists’ glee
As sales of drugs for coughs and colds
Go high as high can be

And as for those at Kleenex
Well their day is really made
As every sniff or large ‘atchoo
Means tissue trades upgrade

But as the bugs arrive in force
From the ‘chills’ to winter flu
Remember that the old wives say
A tonic’s good for you

Yes tonics that they swear are great
Even if they taste quite grot
With onions, garlic, vinegar
To lessen all the snot!

Or maybe those that promise
To infuse vitality
From brews of minerals and herbs
To juices and fruit teas

So try them to be certain
You could have done no more
To combat winter viruses
A-queuing at your door!


By way of note this neither recommends the use of or vouches for any remedies or tonics etc.  Always seek medical advice if you have concerns!
