Sick Day

Lazy Limericks

You complain of how you feel ill
To your mother — her answer a thrill
Your body taxed
You kick back and relax
To watch a midday episode of Doctor Phil

Your parents have indulged you
When you said you had the flu
No Xbox, though
A harsh blow
So you watch a marathon of movies, in lieu

To be free of the school routine
For even a day, it’s serene
Of blankets instead
And hot meals in bed
Even if your mucus is thick and green
