The first of the funny get well poems on this page addresses the flu. It's good to make someone smile with a hot cup of tea and one of these funny get well poems.


The Flu
You have the flu.
You’re breathing glue
And feeling kind of hot.
Your fever’s high
And though you try
Your nose stays full of snot.
So drink some tea
And think of me.
As far as I can tell,
You’ll get no hug
Or see my mug
Until you’re feeling well!

Get well soon!

One of the best Get Well Soon gifts is a thoughtful delivery of flowers, especially when someone you love or care about a lot is recuperating in the hospital. Couple that with a funny poem, and a speedy recovery is just around the corner.

Okay, in the interest of being honest, I will admit that the idea for the next of the funny get well poems came to me while taking out the garbage. The bag was torn and my hand clutched some used tissue (yuck!) and suddenly the words, "wheezy" and "queasy" came to mind. I finished with the trash, washed my hands, (did I mention that I have OCD?) and wrote the words down for later.

Wheezy
You’re wheezy,
And sneezy,
And feeling kind of queasy.
Your head feels like an overstuffed balloon.

You’re tired,
Perspired,
And feel like you’ve expired.
But here’s a wish
Instead:
Please get well soon!

The following funny get well poem gets a lift of humor with the word play in the last two lines. That's the fun of poetry: if you don't have just the right word -- you can make it up!



We Hope That It's Not Serious
We hope that it’s not serious.
We hope you’re not delirious.
We hope that you’re not feeling blue.
We hope it’s not a nasty flu.
We hope your butt’s not in a sling.
We wish you only best of things.
We send you all our get-well wishes
Packed along with love and kishes.

A collection of funny get well poems would not be complete without a poem regarding surgery. This poem is light and friendly, with just an edge of humor at the very beginning.

Get Well Soon
We know that you’ve had surgery
in places not to mention,
And you’ve been gone for long enough
to gather our attention.

So you can see, we’ve signed this poem,
and folded it to send,
With wishes for recovery,
for you to heal and mend.

You might be kind of wondering
why we would make this fuss.
The truth is that we miss you much
and want you back with us!

There is sometimes a good side to convalescing. All of us occasionally need a true day off to lay in bed and watch TV. That is what this funny get well poem is all about.

In Bed All Day
You get to stay in bed all day.
You get to watch TV
Or lay around or read a book.
Your time is really free.

Forget your work, your empty desk
With files stacked to the ceiling,
And loads of e-mails to be read…
We know how you are feeling.

Just settle back and rest a while.
We promise you no flack.
But when your rest is over, well,
We really need you back!
