Why This Nose And Not A Beak

(Image Source: https://www.healthtap.com)


Why this nose and not a beak?
Why why why, 'cause I hate to sneeze.

A dismal day it had to be
Water down my nose, my eyes, poor me.

Luscious dishes paint my plate
My taste buds betray, it's what I hate.

This bug of cold I always fear
My senses become numb, lost right here.

I waffle around, mindless vain
I have lost my mind, behaving insane.

Don't blame me for this piece
With folded nose I pray for peace.

And thus I ask, why this nose and not a beak?
Why why why, 'cause I absolutely hate to sneeze.

  7. I haven't been sick in some 15 years, but I can relate ... get well soon, Mr. G ... I deal with noses anytime, it's people's beaks that worry me ... rather take a sneeze that hurts the body than a hiss that hurts the soul ...

    Funny for us to read but I suppose not for the one suffering from cold.
