Where is your nose?

Over at Sticky Fingers, Tara is celebrating ‘Red Nose Day 25th anniversary’ She has also drawn our attention to Team Honk. So this week the Gallery is all about noses and silliness!


Be glad your nose is on your face,                                                                                       not pasted on some other place,                                                                                          for if it were where it is not,                                                                                                  you might dislike your nose a lot.    

Imagine if your precious  nose                                                                                          were sandwiched in between your toes,                                                                             that clearly would not be a treat,                                                                                           for you’d be forced to smell your feet.

Your nose would be a source of dread                                                                             were it attached atop your head,                                                                                             it soon would drive you to despair,                                                                                        forever tickled by your hair.

Within your ear, your nose would be an absolute catastrophe,                                           for when you were obliged to sneeze,                                                                                your brain would rattle from the breeze.

Your nose, instead, through thick and thin,                                                                        remains between your eyes and chin,                                                                                 not pasted on some other place–                                                                                         be glad your nose is on your face!
