Being ill is no fun at all
like bringing a shark round to play,
he’d eat all your toys
or snap them in half,
it really does ruin your day.
Don’t call on a whale if you want to feel better
he’d flood your room with a splash,
make your bed all soggy
your pyjamas too
and fall through the floor with a crash.
A giraffe would certainly not sort you out
with a body as tall as your house,
he’d munch on your curtains
and smear your windows
with a tongue making mess throughout.
As for a bear, I don’t think he’d care
if he smothered your carpet with honey,
leaving a sticky mess
that glues your feet
to a floor that’s rather yummy.
It’s not a happy time if you’re feeling so poorly
better stay in your bed for a while,
make use of the time
all the treats you’ll get
you’ll soon be out there running wild.
If you decide to call for the animal doctors
please remember the advice I’ve given,
they’ll leave your bedroom
in an awful mess,
but your bug may be well and truly bitten!
