KNOBBY NOSES


by John Yeo

Welcome to the venerable society of Knobby Noses 

Our members are distinguished by a common feature 

Which the powerful nasal pathway to the brain exposes.

Our years of careful scientific investigation proposes

High intelligence is gained through Nature not Nurture

Welcome to the venerable society of Knobby Noses.

~

Each cell on the bumps along the pathway encloses

Powerful intellectual pulses blending into the future

Which the powerful nasal pathway to the brain exposes.

~

The questions and implications this discovery poses 

By joining our society you become another seeker

Welcome to the venerable society of Knobby Noses.

~

Every lump, every bump, every knob clearly discloses

The heights and the depths of our high Supernature

Which the powerful nasal pathway to the brain exposes.

~

This revolutionary discovery makes our knobs explosive

Every bump and lump becomes an accomplished teacher

Which the powerful nasal pathway to the brain exposes.

Welcome to the venerable society of Knobby Noses.

 Decide on a particular part of your body and imagine it has a voice – what do you think it would have to say for itself – humorous or sensible – your foot, your mouth, your ear, your head, etc.

Your piece of writing might include detailed description, facts, names and technical details. Or just Imagine it can tell us about itself and what it feels like to be it.

THE INEVITABLE AGEING PROCESS

by John Yeo

The inevitability of the ageing process.
As the body begins to slow down
The mind continues to function on regardless.

~

Millions of brain cells communicating
Talking to each other and remonstrating
Generating a hubbub of noisy chatter.

~

The continuation and maturation
With ongoing natural development,
Brings the added inevitable complication
Of slow diminution and deterioration,
Leading to insidious mental retardation.

~

As brain cells enter a mode of self destruction.
The process is slow but sure degeneration
Forgetfulness brings further complication.

~
Leading to the hopeless realisation

Although getting old is inevitable

~
Silence can be golden.
