My Sneeze

My teacher asked me;
“Goodness sakes, Bessie,
Just look at your arm,
Why is it so messy?”

It makes you wonder,
When they have to sneeze,
How teachers wipe off
The mess that it leaves.

It was quite a sneeze,
The worst of the day.
Kids that were close by
Complained of the spray.

Where else could I wipe
The gook a sneeze leaves?
No tissue or hankie,
And my dress had short sleeves!
