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.
