Calling in Sick After a Hundred Miler

by Adam Gifford

I cannot come to work today,

My IT band is not OK.

My toenails only number 6,

And this chafing will take time to fix.

The Giardia’s taken hold,

Please believe in what I’ve told.

A doctor’s note I can’t reveal,

But this buckle proves the way I feel.
