Measles
 
 


by Bruce Lansky
 
   
There are measles on my forehead.
There are measles on my nose.
There are measles on my elbows.
There are measles on my toes.
There are measles on the carpet.
There are measles on the chair.
There are measles on my glasses.
There are measles in my hair.
I’m so tired of painting measles.
I would like to take a rest.
I sure hope I have enough to be
excused from tomorrow’s test.
