I stuck my finger up my nose


I stuck my finger up my nose
to see what it contained.
I found a bunch of crazy things
that cannot be explained.

I found a dozen rubber bands.
I found a piece of string.
I found my missing basketball.
I found a playground swing.

I found a giant pot of gold.
I found a sailing boat.
I found an ancient castle
with a drawbridge and a moat.

I found a hairy mastodon.
I found a purple car.
I found an Earth-bound starship
from a not too distant star.

But now despite the awesome stuff
I found inside my snout,
I wish I’d never poked in there —
my finger won’t come out!

Luv it! Who said exploration and discovery was limited to the big wide world
