By
   To wake up so early

Tired from fun.

To party till the wee hours

And rise with the sun.



My weekend is over

I must now go to school.

An extension would be great,

Staying home would be cool.



So I crawled to my mom

In my nice warm jammies.

I told her my head was hot

And my hands were clammy.



She gave me an aspirin

Saying I was quite ill.

So I threw in the bit

Of a bellyache and a chill.



I ran back to my room

Knowing I had won

And I slept and slept

Until quarter to one.



So, for all of you guys

Doing work that boggles your head.

Remember me,

I'll be in bed. . .

Haha. Excellent! You've captured the feel of the lazy teenager's greatest victory.
