I am ill, I am ill

Asked my 11/12 year old students to think about when they are ill. Their words. My Verse. This poem style inspired by Michael Rosen.

I’m ill, I’m ill
The T.V is on
I’m doing my homework in my bedroom.
I’m ill, I’m ill
my mother’s shouting
the dog is barking
the phone is vibrating
I’m ill, I’m ill
my sister is singing
‘You should be at school!’
‘Do you have exams?’ asks my Mother
I’m ill, I’m ill
I’m not at school
I miss my friends
I wish it was summer
I’m ill, I’m ill
I feel bad
I am in pain
