School Phobia – If It’s Monday I Have a Tummy Ache!


At one time school really wasn’t so good. I didn’t even begin to think I could.

Ever since that time, on Monday morn I do everything I can my school to scorn.

I’m always just a bit sick on Monday, or I’m mad when I get into my mom’s Hundai.


I’m never ready for the first of the week because, you see, it’s avoidance I seek.

Someone needs to show me more than just how, and hear my hurt, yet see me through it, right now!
