Closed off and hurting, licking his wounds
As guards paraded around the bars like small moons orbiting him
Gideon smiled, wiping away the blood from his nose
Everyone thought he was doomed to die at sunrise
Didn’t understand he needed to be close, that he allowed himself to be captured… Their screams started
“What’s that at the end of your nose?”
“Ah, that’s a wee bit of nothin’.”
“Really now? I think you might be one of them thar witches.”
“That’s so stereotypical, you bigot. Keep that up and I’ll turn you into a newt!”
Cup of her liquid wakeup was held close to her nose
Olfactory sensors lit up her brain with anticipation
Followed with her stomach preparing for the scalding acidic onslaught
Fluid of the darkest black splashed and sloshed along her tongue
Everything in her mouth screamed as the heat seared her taste buds
Except she considered that her wakeup alarm symphony. The day could now begin.
Can’t stop my nose from running a marathon
Only my eyes are also in the competition
Leaving me drinking like a sailor to keep from dehydrating
Don’t worry. I’m sure it’s not COVID and just a…
Tossing insults like darts and getting bullseyes
He smiled at the silent marks drinking their cheap whiskey from the bottle
Reaching for a cigarette, he lit it and blew smoke at them
Only there still wasn’t a peep. He closed his eyes and took another drag
Which is why he didn’t see the bottle fly into his nose
Rat race? You want to talk to me about a rat race?
Ordinarily I would tell you to pick up your cheese and go home
Don’t understand why people like you poke your nose into these parts
Everyone should have a chance to escape the maze, sure. but
Not going to stop you from getting caught in the traps strewn about
That snap will be your early finish line. Now that’s a rat race!
Silence is becoming of you
Please! You’re just trying to be a kerfuffle!
Even now do you hear how you talk?
Evidently, but what if I don’t give an aardvark’s nose about that?
Can you even explain what that’s supposed to mean?
Have you flummoxed with that one, aren’t ya? See, I speak good!
Something really smelled bad
Christine plugged her nose and entered her daughter Fiona’s room
Every piece of clothing had somehow escaped her closet and found its way to the floor
Not going to find the source of the stink in that mess she just closed the door
That’s why, when Fiona was told she had to clean before doing anything else…
She said, “That stinks!” No truer words were spoken.
Pushing the water aside as she knifed through the liquid
Oxygen greedily gulped in with every third stroke
Out the carbon dioxide bubbled through her nose into the water
Leaving them behind to pop behind her
Jurisprudence usually didn’t make Michelle laugh
Under normal circumstances, people’s lives hung into balance
Still, something about the state vs. a pair of puppies made her laugh
They did destroy a bunch of stuffed animals
In the photos, you could see the joy the two pups had in their crime spree
Cuteness would only get them and their owner so far
Eventually, the law would prevail, but would it just be a newspaper slap on the nose?
