This is not a breeze!
I’m sick at home
Stuck in this dome
I can’t even eat any cheese
My mother gave me a very hot towel
Then some medicine, I thought it was foul.
I gulped it down.
It made me frown.
And then I started to howl.
My teachers sent me a get-well card
And some homework, I thought it was hard.
I asked if I could go downstairs.
“This homework is a nightmare!”
“No,” my mother said, and stood on guard.
Finally, I did get better
The doctors sent me a very long letter
My mother read me the prescription
And gave a weird description
Later at school, I got 29 hugs and a nice, warm sweater.
