It happens once every seven nights.
I close my eyes with great fear.
For soon, the gremlins will appear.
They haunt and tease, taking great delight in my despair.
May be I’ll tell my parents that I’m sick?
Perhaps a day at home will do the trick.
I can only play that game so many times.
As this may lead to a worse fate, a trip to the doctor
It was just a few hours ago that I played with friends.
Now it seems like an oasis, a dream, something only imagined.
All of this seems so unfair,
I just can’t bear.
For I’m haunted by what tomorrow brings.
It’s a Monday!
It’s a new school week.
I have Mondayitis!
