What do I say?

Location

What do I say,

When she asks for name

When she looks at me straight and says this is no game

 

That school is a priviledge 

That I should be awake

What do I say when my hands start to shake?

 

She begins to look worried

And that's when I scurried

Down the hall and to the left

 

To the bathroom out of breath

Face in the toilet

And how could I avoid it?

 

The sickening taste

And lack of toothpaste

There's no way out

 

That's when she knew

That deep within

I had a problem that nothing could mend

 

And what do I say

When I lie to her face

And flat out say that I'm okay
