Another one from Indy.

The odour of their nose, nobody knows

Because we smell it every time we sniff 

It taints the scents we think we smell, but If

Someone could smell the world without their nose:

Receive the odours straight into their brain,

The smells would all seem strange, without the smell

Of snot and skin and nostril hairs as well.

You don’t think that you smell them? I’ll explain:

You smell your nose. You smell it all the time

It flavours every flavour you inhale

It isn’t sweet or spicy sour or stale:

You smell it without knowing. It’s no crime

To wonder: anything that’s always there

We do not notice, so we do not care.
