Onomatopoeia Flu


A sniffle a snort
A wheeze and a sneeze
A belch a burp and a moan.

A slurp a sigh
A hiss and a buzz
A babble a wow and a groan.

An utter a sputter
A mumble and a grumble
A barf a spit and a spew.

A cough a hack
A hum and a yawn
A sheesh then finally…a whew!

There are flues that can make smoke float up,
And there are flues that can make folks lie down.
But the Onomatopoeia Flu is the only flu
That can make you make really weird sounds.

  4. As somebody that hasn’t listened to an onomatopoeia in a while (at least from what I remember), this blog post was fun to read.

    Clever! A fun read. Almost of a rhythm with Jobim’s “Waters of March.”

    This is great! Every teacher ought to have to memorize this before she even starts to introduce the idea to a class.
