2nd attempt. I don't write poetry or prose because mostly I don't understand it, but I will try and write by the rules.
Everyone suddenly burst out singing.
And I was filled with such delight.
I woke that morning filled with such dread.
I thought to myself, "I'll just stay in bed."
I reached for the phone to call in sick.
The boss said to me, "Oh, you're such a hick."
Hours or minutes I do not know which
There was a rap on the door that caused me to twitch.
I called out, "Come in." Though I know not why.
I thought I might just possibly die.
The room filled with people who were noisily winging.
Suddenly everyone burst out singing.
And I was filled with such delight
that I gave up my blight.
It was only a birthday.
And I couldn't give up without a fight.
