snow days were the worst days

younger me
never liked snow days
both parents went to work
left the kids with the old sitter
watching game shows
all day long
sitting on the stiff carpet
bums going numb
afraid to sit on the long brown couch
every man for himself
we learned when she took out her wooden spoon
after a poop that i didn't flush because i thought i wasn't supposed to
not knowing the mellow rule only applied to pee
the other boy was blamed
and got a whooping
as i watched
