A Horror of Noses

A Horror of Noses


I have a horror of noses

Though we all need our sense of smell,

A mask is a thing of protection,

But we have failed to wear it well.

Our conspicuous facial organ

Flops over the parapet

And sneezes and snorts and does nothing

But spits out snot and sweat.

I have a horror of noses.

Profile Information

Hello there. I'm Mark Bashford and I live on the west coast of West Wales in the United Kingdom.  I have driven down Hollywood Boulevard in a gold Ferrari, climbed a mountain in China and danced with the Monkey King!  You know, the usual stuff!


Oh, and I write books, when the weather's bad.  This is Wales.  We have a lot to do with rain!
