His Nose

The nose he wears sits on his head It's big and round and very red; And in the dark it always glows It must be awful to own that nose. There's two dark holes filled with hair With whatever else that's hidden there; Each time I see with great surprise That glow that sits between his eyes. It shines as though when night meets day There never could be another way; I wonder too if he can tell If red affects his sense of smell. Perhaps the problem is I think He's had in time too much to drink; I suggested then to paint it white And he seemed to think this was alright. For Frank Herrera's Zaniest Poetry Contest Elizabeth Wesley

I must say I was browsing your library of poetry and I was a bit taken by the name of this one. I thought you were referring to a clown at first, but then I realized it was a fairly deep poem about what I think is abuse of alcohol. Anyway, I was captivated and impressed, and just a little disgusted!  -KMD

LOL LOVE the humor, Elizabeth. I had a friend who drank a lot, but I don't think he would have allowed me to paint his nose white. (Actually, I was thinking of Rudolph the reindeer in the beginning.) Very clever and witty! Love, Carolyn

Elizabeth... This takes people watching to a whole new and interesting level. This nose is the nucleous!Te narcisstic point of the face beheld by the watcher pointing to the person /character of the person that is opened up in the last line. Gotta hand it to you. It's really cool!Love it. I will give this a shot myself sometime because of your inspiration.

[YOu inspired me shoosh!] Light & Love

"There's two dark holes filled with hair - with whatever else that's hidden there;" Wonderful! If he's had that much to drink, why then anything would be alright. This one made my day. Love, daver

WoW! Poor guy. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer had that prob. too and all his friends laughed at him. It's true too much alcohol will do that to the nose. It's so sensitive; and I do think it ruins the olfactory senses. This is funny and just too cute. Great hob Liz. God Bless, JB
