There was a nutty lady,
Who struggled with IEPs, evals, Medicaid, field trips, and students’ breaking windows/biting/kicking…
Overwhelmed and in a daze,
Her brain was in a haze,
End of the year maze.
Just 18 more days…

There was a nutty lady,
Who hosted a grad party.
42 guests came,
Her home will never be the same.
She hosted the party to forget the daze,
Her brain was in a haze,
End of the year maze.
Just 18 more days…

There was a nutty lady,
Who used tons of coupons for the party
Cuz she ran out of grocery money,
And had one decoration (sorry honey!).
She couponed voraciously to host the party,
She hosted the party to forget the daze,
Her brain was in a haze,
End of the year maze.
Just 18 more days…

There was a nutty lady,
Who got lost in her weeds.
She planted 10 blueberry plants,
Mowed daily and battled ants.
She tackled the yard where guests could eat,
She fed the guests to host the party,
She hosted the party to forget the daze,
Her brain was in a haze,
End of the year maze.
Just 18 more days…

There was a nutty lady,
Who gained back some sanity
With a chocolate, peanut-butter cake
That she ventured to make.
She baked the cake to provide some energy,
She needed the energy to tackle the yard,
She tackled the yard where guests could eat,
She fed the guests to host the party,
She hosted the party to forget the daze,
Her brain was in a haze,
End of the year maze.
Just 18 more days…
