Tonight whilst lying in my bed
I heard a monster nearby
'Snort!' It went, as I cowed in fear
I couldn't sleep - How could I?
'Snort!' and 'Sniffle. Cough!' and 'Spit!'
How monstrously it sounded.
I shrank beneath the sheets in dread
As down the hall feet pounded.
It's coming close! It's entering!
The door swung open quickly.
'I've got Man-Flu!' It coughed aloud,
'I'm feeling really sickly!'
'GO BACK TO BED!' I yelled at him,
'Your germs are quickly spreading!
I have to cook and clean and work -
So catching Flu - I'm dreading!'
He stumbled back, dissatisfied,
- I wasn't sympathetic.
I hadn't praised his brush with Death
- A fight - Supreme and Epic!!
Going to my school was an education in itself. Which is not to be confused with actually getting an education (Schultz)
