Mom, youíre the expert,
So itís all up to you,
But I really am thinking
I should stay home from school.

I know there are lessons
I really should learn,
But one of them isnít
How to spread germs!

My eyes are all reddish
Theyíre starting to itch
While one side of my face
Is beginning to twitch.

Iím wheezy and sneezy,
My fingers are numb,
And Iím sure that Iím breathing
With only one lung.

My nose keeps on running,
But I donít know where.
The last time I saw it
Was under the chair.

My temperature's rising
Then it comes down
Then all the while,
The room's spinning 'round.

My stomach is turning,
Itís coming undone,
So in a few minutes
I might have to run!

My head wonít stop aching,
My strength's in reserve,
When I try to bend down,
I keep pinching a nerve.

Iím losing my hearing,
"What did you say?"
Oh Mom Iím so glad
You see it my way.

Iíll go call my friends,
Iíll make it real quick.
If Iím not in school,
They might think that Iím sick.

Hey, I just found out
The test is next week,
So I better hurry
Or Iíll lose my seat.

I hear the bus coming,
I really must skat,
But Mom, thanks a million
For having this chatÖ.

Peace Abel
