Be Glad Your Nose Is On Your Face

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!

This was so funny! Loved it
A beautiful reflection of the sheer ingenuity of a jesting mind. Indeed, one should be glad that his/her nose 👃 is on the face. Imagine the face very close to the anus, like the foul smelling genitals. Lovely poem elegantly penned with conviction.
we take a lot of things for granted? nice funny poem.
