TRIADE OF MY NOSE
My toe looked up at my nose
In an obvious envious mood
‘Hey, you! Who do you think you are,
Up there so smooth and good,
While I submit to damp darkness
Stuffed in a sock and shoe!’
Have you ever felt the rim of a bike?
Or bumped up against concrete?
Been cramped in a skate? Pierced by a nail?
Felt the cobblestones down the street?
I say, Nose- I’ll trade you places
Let you walk life’s way awhile
Hey there, Nose! Take me serious!
Why don’t you give it a trial?
With pity on the toe’s poor plight,
The nose saw another sight.
My shape is not so sturdy as yours
I couldn’t bear the weight
Each time the leg came up and down
I’d be crushed beneath the freight
Serious you might be toe-
But sorry, Later, I feel humiliated
Upon man’s face
You’d be glad to lead his heal
‘Cor.12:12-26

About Shashi Moore

Having covered half a century of my time on this Earth; enthusiastically creating an impression on my students has given me the much needed excuse to continue to live another few decades, if possible. An educationist by choice and a mother by grace of God.
