Pickin’ a winner

June 5, 2021

For The A Mused Poetry Contest 5/29/2021 – 6/26/2021

The Theme is a silly poem about an unusual eccentricity.


I feel an urge!
There’s something to purge!

I can’t tell it’s size
without a poke and a prise.

Is it soft as a sock
or as hard as a rock?

I won’t know a where, a what or a why
until I reach in and wiggle and try.


I pick my nose.
And so it goes.

What’s that you ask?

Well —

It was yellow and green
it was curled up and dried;
and if I ate it or not
is up to you to decide.

I know it’s kind of gritty,
my slightly odd eccentricity.
And though it’s not so pretty,
I hope you won’t dismiss-a-me.

Oh – –

And please do remember
that if you were a booger
I’d pick you first.


And while we’re here —

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Europe who?
No, you are.
