Full Frontal.

By foggytwo
In my never ending search to bring something different to the site I have decided to throw caution to the wind and present to you a "FULL FRONTAL".
WARNING: The photographer accepts no responsibility for anyone daring to look at the large version.

A day in the life of a pimple.

In the morning a swelling was noticed.
A look in the mirror confirmed it so.
The birth of a pimple it certainly was.
It was red with a yellowish glow.
It had grown a bit bigger by lunchtime.
The momentum was there I suppose.
But why does a pimple so red and bright.
Grow out of the end of your nose ?.
Whilst sat on the bus heading home.
I caught sight of a window reflection.
What I saw did not amuse me.
The pimple had spread out in every direction.
The family laughed at the tea table.
They tossed "Pimple" jokes freely around.
Not amused, me or my pimple.
Which had changed to a nice shade of brown.
Crossing my eyes, I looked down my nose.
To see this pimple stare back up at me.
By this time, large and inflated.
The centre seemed to be full of Brie.
After a shower and just before bedtime.
The pimple looked really diseased.
I raised my hands to my face without thinking.
I grimaced then finally squeezed.
Tears filled my eyes as I stood there.
I kept squeezing without interruption.
The pimple went off like mount Fuji.
With a first grade super eruption.
By the morning the nose was quite tender.
I rubbed in some cream pure and simple.
It shows what some folk have to go through.
On a day in the life of a pimple.
