1068 - Ode to a Tissue II




Ode to a Tissue II

I think that I shall never see
A tissue that remains snot free.

A tissue whose soft body’s prest
Against my nasal decongest;

A tissue that looked so clean and pure
Until it met my nose manure;

A tissue that was so neatly folded
(Best not examine what is beholded.)

The contents of this papery shell
Are the off-spring of a primordial hell.

Slime may come and slime may go
But it’s tissues that help to make it so.

  1. A tribute made to sigh
    to tissues nearby

You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
