school days blues

Got a sniffle, a trickle down the back of my throat
Got a little sniffle, a dry itch in the back of my throat
It's just school starting, on a tired and run-down note.

Pushing all day, feeling like I'm all worn out
Moving and shaking all day, all my energy's drained out.
It's the start of school, and my getupandgo's got up and got out.

I've got the blues
(insert guitar lick here, if I played guitar)
The reach for a vitamin C and a cup of Airborne blues.
I've got the blues (more guitar, maybe a little piano bass)
The rundown immune system blues
I've got lesson plans to write and papers to grade --
And I've got the run-down school starting immune system blues.

That's a great parody. I'm always impressed by a good poet! Such a unique talent.
Nice to "meet" you!
