The Nose

The Nose
What could a nose know? It tells you when to sneeze and when to blow, by the way it can spread *disease!
We must take it everywhere we go and it doesn’t care, it loves to get in the way of a kiss, to make it a hit or a miss.
It hates the very cold air, for that it will repay you with pain, soreness, and despair. It loves to put itself into other people’s business, in that, it feels very cozy along with its twin nosy.

It hates Public Toilets and some Private also, don’t ask it “how do I smell” it may go ring that special bell. Remember that Anniversary dinner when it decided that off to the races it would run, my, how that can spoil your fun and upset your loved one.
Mom's cooking always gave your nose a lift, thank God for your fickle nose Gift!

*I remember seeing a picture of a frozen sneeze of a man on a Train on the cover of a Nationwide Popular Magazine. It showed a cloud of droplets around five feet wide and around eight feet long-yuck! So, if you can, it’s good to cover up but some sneezes are so quick you don’t have the opportunity to do so.

    Hahah...The opening stanza made me laugh...yup that nose
    does know how to get in the way and do so many things pleasant
    and unpleasant too! Each stanza is filled with smiles and agreement
    nicely penned!
