Rub my eyes as I grow ill
I'll blow my runny nose
Burning fever, shaking chill
And thus this state arose

Take to me your brandished knife
And all that runs therewith
Clear what's foul for sake of life
With potion acting swift

Fill my bowl to brim with soup
Then prod, it's down my pate
Stomach churns, perhaps recoup
Perhaps regurgitate

As you say, a clogged toilet doesn't exactly work. The second guess would actually work pretty well as a story of a car breaking down - emergency blinkers, horn honking or fluid leaking, engine going from running or overheated (warm) to dead (cold), getting an oil change, then perhaps working. Quite creative and appropriate, just not what I've got in mind.

And minor edit to the riddle made purely for poetic-ish-ness's sake.

Sort of a judgement call on whether I should count that first guess as correct. But after reviewing the instant replay, I'll call the riddle solved.
