Too Sick To Go To Work

Too Sick to Come to Work

By Elton Camp

Yesterday, Joe work up with the flu
To stay home from work he must do

“How they will get by, I don’t know
However, I am just a lot too sick to go.”

Joe thought about the office with dismay
How, without him, it must be in disarray

Phone rang, he thought, urging his return
Although he did with a high fever burn

“It’s your supervisor,” his wife did say
And they have had a most marvelous day.”

“He wants you to take off a week or two
Because so much more work they can do.”

Always at work is the best way, no doubt
Don’t show how easy you are to do without
