Being Sick
By Sharon MacDonald

Being sick is yucky!
I ache from toe to head
I take some awful medicine
And spend long days in bed.

Being sick is such a bore.
There is nothing much to do,
You watch TV or play with toys,
Or read about Winnie the Pooh.

Being sick is not much fun!
But when I do recover,
I feel so smart and smug because
I gave it to your brother!
