George has a mental illness
He doesn’t know which one
But he takes his pills morning and night
It isn’t very fun

It’s not that he’s ashamed
But explaining can be hard
How do you tell your boss
Without letting down your guard?

Taking a mental health day
Is looked at as a cheat
But George needs a day to lie and rest
So bad stuff does not repeat

Some of the other stuffies
Think George is just a goof
But who would want an illness
That makes you feel aloof

It doesn’t matter what they say
George is taking today to rest
So tomorrow he will maybe feel
Closer to his best
