Sonya's Sense of Smell




Sonya's sense of smell,
Sets everyone at ease.
Soiled diapers don't unnerve her,
Simply by using her mouth to breathe.

Sensible satisfying suppers,
Salty foods need not apply.
Sauteed brussels sprouts with tofu,
Somewhat appetizing on the eyes.

Sonya's sense of smell,
Sealed her very first kiss.
Strong signs of halitosis,
Seemingly gone amiss.

Sister Sally sadly snarled,
Secretly yearning for a nasal polyp.
So she wasn't susceptible to swamp butt,
Sweaty jocks sure packed a wallop.

Sonya's sense of smell,
Surprised everyone who knew her.
Significant other was truly blessed,
Sanitation engineer supervised a sewer.

  6. Swamp butt...LOL. I'm often mocked for my sense of smell superpowers. Really, I can sometimes tell if the person in the car ahead of me is smoking or not. I'm very sensitive.

  7. Very clever story in your poem. I'm one of those with a sensitive nose for what's around me. Sometimes it's annoying, but I'd hate not to have that sense.

    1. Luanne - One person's "superpower" is another person's curse! Your nose does travel great distances which is quite impressive.

      Lee - I agree that there are too many sweet smelling things that we would miss out on.

  10. Could anyone possibly say that your alliterative poem stinks?

  11. Haha, swamp butt cracked me up. I don't think I want to know what that smells like.

  12. I think I suffer from the opposite problem. My sense of smell is sometimes heightened.
