A Cacophony of Scents

 

Perfume should enhance

The beauty within

But it is in conflict

With the smell of your skin

 

Lotions to smooth

And tonics to shape

Then make up and lipstick

You cannot escape

 

There’re scents all around

From your feet to your brow

Just wafting about

I cannot think now

 

A battle is waging

For dominant scent

My eyes they are watering

My nostrils resent

 

The smell of the forest

Wet nettles underfoot

Flowers and raindrops

Some fire and soot

 

These are the aromas

Soothing and true

Gentle their touch

So much better for you
