Our day quickly becomes distracting
when we have a nose that flows.
For we cannot help reacting
when our smeller becomes our foe.
There is nothing so subtracting
as when its color turns red as a rose.
And red noses are certainly detracting–
for in the toilet our looks go.
Whether an from allergy or cold
our sniffling, snorting woes
make us push up tissues to hold
the mucosal waterfall hose.
Most people take whiny issue
when sneezes shake their toes.
When people throw their tissues
selfishly here, there and down below,
sides are drawn and friends become foes.
But ahh, a benefit to a snotty nose;
some days are meant for these mean lows.
For now and then we are meant to rest
and a flowing nose is an obvious show
and an excuse that is just the best!
My tongue-in-cheek homage to winter colds……
