I feel a flash heat my throat
As if I’ve swallowed a fiery mote
It spreads quickly through my chest
This burning feeling is not a jest
My tongue feels dry, my lips parched
The sensation leaves me quite arched
I try to drink, but it does no good
The heat persists, as if it should
This feeling is quite hard to bear
It’s as if my throat is on fire, I swear!
I hope it passes soon, this burning sensation
And leaves me with no further vexation.
