Back to Bush Poetry

My mother nags me all the time
and says: "I do believe
That if you need to wipe your nose
you should not use your sleeve."

Well that's okay for boring folk   
who cart a hanky round,
But every time I look for one
they're never to be found.

Mum keeps saying: "Be prepared."
Well, what does she suppose -
It's not as though I ever PLAN
to have a runny nose!
