Little White Lie, Oh My!

I’m Tempted to call in sick today,

They won’t miss me if I’m away,

It’s snowy and blowy and really too cold,

I just want to stay in and put work on hold,

A perfect day to while away the time,

Won’t cost me a thing, not even a dime,

I glance at the clock, I must decide,

‘Should I?  Shouldn’t I?’ back & forth like a tide,

I scurry, I hurry to place in the call,

Then comes the best realization of all–

I’m still on holidays, I’m having a ball:-).
