The Nose Knows to Laughing Chewbacca Mask Lady 
A ridiculous but well written poem 
A ridiculous mom and her new mask 

The Nose Knows (light poetry) 

Recall when I played with your toes
And how they got stuck in my nose
The hospitals were all closed
So we went to your Auntie Rose
I can’t repeat the words she chose
For flower then sprouting from nose
She shouted to take off our clothes
As she rushed to get garden hose
And then for some pictures we posed
I asked her why she needed those
A secret she wouldn’t disclose
To guy with a girl in his nose
Then hose in free nostril impose
Twas then that my worries arose
What act had the brainless proposed
As off to some faucet she goes
The last words I heard There she blows
As all that I knew blew from nose
When I had escaped heaven’s throes
The girls replaced laughter for woes
As once more my weakness exposed
You’d think that by now we’d be foes
But there they were putting on shows
And this time I covered my nose 

Does poetry have to be serious? Let's ask Dr. Seuss. One might say (and with good merit) that this is a ridiculous poem. It does, however, follow a very tight meter and rhyme scheme. Oh yah? What about the "ed" in the third line? All the third lines end with "ed". 

I'm a "leg man". Some men like breasts, Some men like butts. I like legs. Arlene had great legs. Her problem was a bit lower. She had a BIG shoe problem. She had a real shoe fetish. Arlene's shoe stash rivaled Imelda Marcos'. She owned shoes that she never wore (except in the shoe store). Now, I could have gotten real frustrated and mad. Instead, Arlene went out of her way to take care of her feet. Now I had great feet and legs. Arlene convince me (with those great legs and feet) how important shoes were. Arlene's shoe size was 6 and a half. Does that give you a hint of what happened next? I said Arlene had a shoe problem. She solved it. 

One more story. English was one of my favorite subjects in school. In high school, I learned that teachers were just people going to work, With this in mind, I tried to add a touch of humor to all my English writing assignments. I did this to entertain a person who had to read countless papers and to make my papers stand out. And stand out they did, all the way through college. I was never the best student in class. I believe those papers won me extra attention from my teachers and helped keep English fun. 

Okay, we have a tale of beautiful feet and a bit of fun in English class. Put them together and we have this poem. That may be a stretch. But fun can be found everywhere. One thing that problems hate is a smile and the sound of laughter. Let us allow a smile and a laugh into all aspects of our lives (including poetry) and enjoy. 

And for complete nonsense: Ernie Kovacs "Nairobi Trio" 

Are we laughing yet 

As the legend goes, Chewbacca, of Star Wars fame, was inspired by George Lucas seeing his own dog sitting up on the passenger seat of his car. A Chewbacca mask is available at stores, which also includes Chewie's voice. With that said, meet Candace Payne. She went to Kohls and found this hidden treasure. Candace made a selfie when she got back to her car with her price.
