(by request – Please write about things like hang nails, canker sores, and paper
cuts in between your fingers. I am suffering from all three at the
moment and I feel that your artistic interpretation of my suffering
might offer me some solace.)
Cuticles, hangnails, and really dry skin
Are fingernail problems that might do me in.
I oil and I moisturize, file them and clip,
But into my life ragged fingers still slip.
At night when I’m reading I put on some creme
And I rub it in proper before I go dream.
In the morning I wake up and to my chagrin:
Cuticles, hangnails, and really dry skin.
I clip off my hangnails right as they appear
I tend to them aptly, have I made that clear?
I wash my hands closely and scrub off the dirt,
Then reach for the lemon creme by Bees of Burt.
But cuticles, hangnails, and really dry skin,
Continue to wear this girl’s patience so thin.
Is there anything grosser and less feminine
