And the winner is...

ironpoet recently posted a challenge on his journal: the first poem to cure him of the common cold would be the winner.

And here, ladies and gentlemen, is the winning entry, in all its groan-inducing badness:

There once was a cold in your system.
When thinking of cures you said, "List 'em" --
     Now my thinking in verse
     Will no doubt make things worse
So I recommend trying ant'histam'.

Cures
He said cold, not allergy. Antihistamines are only good against one of the many forms of colds, a condition with a stuffed-up nose. Even my old cure of "hot tea, warm brandy and a warm bed" would be more universal, if not more effective. {{{smiley implied}}}
