The Bimp on my Nose


This morning, without warning, I received a bimp on my nose.

“Oh no, not again!” is what my wife will say, I suppose.

I was having trouble sleeping so I decided I’d do some cleaning.

The bathroom was my mission; in no time I’d have it gleaming.

As usual it happened so fast I wasn’t exactly sure what hit me.

As I watched the droplets of blood dropping on the floor continuously

Most often I do things too quickly but that’s how I function day to day.

In this case it was the towel rack with which my nose got in the way.

I do things like this all the time and the result is always the same.

Some part of me winds up bleeding or bruised or broken and lame.

If I just slowed down a little and thought more clearly,

Surely I’d survive more of my antics and suffer less dearly.

But then, I know you may find this difficult to understand,

Sometimes a little injury makes the achievement all the more grand!
