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
