Half Sick Day

As I awoke, the aches that had
Haunted me yesterday had mostly faded
Away, the previous fever of 100 degrees
The night before had gone down to a nice 98 degrees,
the opportunity to go to school
Was there, but the tv was calling me to
Go and watch the first couple seasons
Of spongebob, so I continue to lay in bed
With this feeling of freedom and joy,
My mom walks in concerned if I still
Feel bad or not, I spread a little white lie and tell her
That my fever and aches are still apparent, as she walks
Out of my room and says goodbye as she leaves
For work, the thoughts of what I can do
On my half sick day are racing through my mind.
