head to toe


straggly hair
lurk in time’s snare
furrowed forehead, brow
constantly mull life’s ebb, flow
brimful laughing eyes stay blind
to visible, only viewing unapparent
pert nose, tad finicky, has
over time learnt to be less picky
chocolate loving puffy cheeks
keep on jiggling egged by mirth
chin neither weak nor obdurate can
and does upturn firmly when needed
middling neck is flexible enough to feint
and gently free self from “pains in neck”
rotund torso is neither here nor there
often makes humming life a nightmare
poor tired feet, toes suffer worst brunt of gobbled
sweet excesses burdened by misshapen pear body
