I'm having stomach pains
my eyes are red
and my arm hurts when it rains.
I almost bit my tongue in two
my ears are ringing
and I think I have the flu.
I can hardly talk
my nose is stuffed up
and my legs hurt when I try to walk.
My throat is all red
I might possibly have chicken pox
and I almost feel dead.
My toes are swollen so they might just fall off
I could have the measles
and it really hurts when I cough.
Even now I can hardly see
its hard getting out of my bed
and I might have a temperature of one hundred and three.
I almost forgot - I don't have school until Monday
so I'll just pull the covers up over my head
and sleep in for the rest of the day.
