Appearing Or Occurring At Irregular Intervals

Stumbled over in an attic
Rarely visited: Sporadic.
Not occasional–that’s when
It happens every now and then
But isn’t unexpected, like
Those weekends when you ride your bike.
Intermittent doesn’t do it–
There’s a sense of purpose to it
That sporadic seems to lack:
Coughing, vice a bad attack
Of hiccups, or a sudden sneeze.
Sporadically bless me, please,
Or, if you’d rather, Gesundheit.
Sporadically, I get that right.
