I Have A Headache

Here's a poem about why I only worked a half-day today.

I HAVE A HEADACHE

My head hurts.
It hurts so bad
I went home early
from work.
Mostly, I blame
the lights in the office
and the monitor
they insist I stare at
for eight hours a day.
I suppose my head
feels okay enough
to type this poem...

What you don't know
is that I wrote this
ten hours later
than the time I implied.
My head only hurts
a little now.
