“I cannot go to school today / Said little Peggy Ann Mikay / I have the measles and the mumps / A gash a rash the purple bumps”

                    

I cannot go to school today

Said little Peggy Ann Mikay

I have the measles and the mumps

A gash a rash the purple bumps

Ugh, can a doctor take a peek

And I think an ant on fleek

Hey what the heck what’s the deal

Well does anyone care how I feel

Ugh, ugh, I think I swallowed a butterfly

Hey stop being stubborn before I lie and cry

What… what’s that you, you say today is saturday

Okay going out to play

    This is great to see you are focused with word play and giving words a new use for them with poetry. Can’t wait to see more of this in your songs, characters, art, even math…yep…math could could be poetic too…

    1 plus 1 equals 2…and since you are not here I’m missing YOU :-}

    Love Daddy
