Every one needs a sick day

Every one needs a sick day



Saturday night not feeling well
Think I am going to stay home
But my friends keep on calling
Not going to answer the phone


Under the sheets to keep warm 
But still the cold makes me shivered
Did not feel to cook today
So I had some Chinese food delivered

Some days we feel strong
Like a lion in the wild
And then when we are sick
That lion becomes meek and mild

My friend’s keep on calling
Didn’t stop till I answer
Said there’s a competition tonight
For the best disco dancer

Sorry to disappoint them 
But in bed I will stay
Calling time out guys,
I’m taking a sick day


Every one needs it some time
Kings, queens and presidents too
I took mines today
Tomorrow might be you

Some may say it’s dumb 
And what a silly poem I write
But let’s hope they don’t get sick
When they go to bed tonight
