The Bug That Bites Back

I watched the doctor come into his office with that hefty clip board,
he began to mumble words,
oh these words he began to mumble would make a parent look at their kid and wanna rumble.
but hey this is a funny poem, and that’s illegal.

“Well Ms. Gable, by the power invested in me, by some really expensive school, I am sorry to say but you’ve got it.
YOU’VE GOT THE BUG!

S-E-N-I-O-R-I-T-I-S
SENIOR- I-T-I-S
S-E-N-I-O-R ITIS

AH! It kept ringing in my ear,
Ringing in my ear,
Ringing in my ear,
Ringing in my ear,
Like one of those mosquitoes that you just wanna put your hand next to and
SMACK

It’s dead. But oh no, you can’t kill this bug that I have ringing inside my ear, oh no.

I watched as the doctor took out his prescription pad and began writing the remedy….


NO DRESSING FOR GYM
NO PAYING ATTENTION IN CLASS
NO SUCKING UP TO THE TEACHER
and don’t you even think about turning anything in on time.

I jumped at the exact moment he ripped the paper off the pad and handed it to me.
He looked me dead in the eye and had the audacity to say….

“Oh kid (ya know patting me on the head) don’t feel bad, one hundred and seventy three students, just like you (saying that like a mother talks to her baby, you know scrunching up her nose and ending on a high note) have been effected already this year. And remember, this prescription will be live and active for the next ninety five days!”
SENIORITIS!!!!!
WHAT THE HELL DO I DO?!
Be careful, cause this might happen to you.
