Ode to DayQuil

Dear DayQuil,

All night long I coughed and coughed.
I tossed and turned,
and groaned and sighed.
I had taken a cough suppressant with codeine prescribed for me,
but sadly it didn't suppress a thing.

I awoke this morning hacking and aching,
and reached for my DayQuil before my coffee.
And here I am, not too long after,
able to think and breathe
and the coughing mostly subsided.

Thank you, DayQuil,
for giving me back the joy of my vacation!
