Vacation Timekeeping - a vacation poem

Vacation Timekeeping
Greg Pincus

Time flies on school vacation!
Up 'til now I'd found that true.
But this time 'round, I have to say,
I found that my time flu.

Just for the record, this poem is (thankfully) not autobiographical. It's just some silliness, I tell ya!

Greg, I found your poem to be light and charming. Thankfully, it was not autobiographical but I am sure it would resonant with many a child who is afflicted by the winter flu.

Sally Murphy said...

Thanks for the giggle, Greg. Glad it's not autobiographical.

Eve Yohalem said...

I love a good pun. Thanks, Greg! (Glad you're not sick.)

Bridget Magee said...

Too funny! So glad it is not true - the flu is the worst no matter when you get it. Happy New Year! =)

Mary Lee said...

Yeah, I can relate. I didn't get the full-on flu, but I did contract a virus that is holding on for the FOURTH week! I just can't shake the cough and drainage. Ugh.

But your poem made me laugh!!

Greg, I love the twist in your poem!Right before winter break, we had a lot of kids and staff out with the flu. So my students will surely relate to your poem! I have been fortunate not to get it YET, and I hope my luck continues. said...

Glad your time didn't flu! I hear a lot of folks did.

Yes, sir. Me, too! I flu.
