No hiding place for me in your face;
As the mountain cannot be hidden so do I.
Standing on the  face;  more  beauties were  added; 
The eyes cannot  see me neither the mouth. 
 I am the mediator between the eyes and the mouth.
If I refuse to act; the mouth will not eat;
If I decided to move out of your face, you will be ugly.
No matter how ugly I make look,  no one dare  cut me off,
Before you commit sin, I smell it.
As sensitive  as I am, no sin pass me by.

I am the root of  all evils, whatever I deserve, I have it.
I can make you to steal, I can make you to run miles with sin;
With your  eyes you admired; but with me you  lust  after  sin.
I know bitter  and good taste of things; the brain, the mouth, and the eyes dances to my tone.
Take away the nose from all souls, sin will be reduce.
Block the nose, souls will drop death and sin will be no more.  
The eyes does not know how sweat or bitter is the food of sin;
With the little  two small holes of mine, no sin pass me by.
The swine valued me, and lack  nothing.
The dark nose of a dog  makes him a perfect detective than man.
I am tired of  been used  as detective;    
The eyes deceives man but I don’t. 
Sitting  on the face; displeases me.
Your greedy appetites forced fluid out of me.
I am delicate; and fragile  never you exhaust;
Some exhausted me and fix plastic; in their  fight to make me stay,
 I refused.
