 Sick Day  (E)
Writer's Cramp Entry Due 12-29-2016
#2106764 by Chris Breva AKA Marvin Schrebe


"Oh my," said I "just why am I to die
Oh wow so I must not go out today
I am sick now so may I now please lie
Inside I am to spend my time at play.

No one will know I am about the house
I know I must remain in bed asleep
I plan to stay silent as my small mouse
No sound will I make no, not one small peep.

I sat and had some fun with my card deck
The time was slow to pass but I did well
Some time when I knew not you came to check
You have seen that my time was not to dwell.

The cards were my objects to pass the time
Just now I felt you pass close by sublime.
