“Coco Cough-not” by Celia Berrell

Coco Cough-not

A wintery cough

can feel rather tough.

 

Persistent and hacking

it sends our smiles packing

then steals counted sheep

so we can’t get to sleep.

 

Now would you cheer up

to know help’s in a cup?

 

It turns out that coco

all jolly and ho-ho

can soothe our cough ills

even better than pills.

 

This chocolate goldmine

contains theobromine

and as we’d expect,

has no ill-effects.

 

With this coco-cough link

have a hot chocolate drink!

An ingredient in chocolate may actually be a more effective cough medicine than traditional remedies, a new study suggests.
