Nose Nuggets

They say there's gold in them thar hills

They say that's where it grows

But I've been hunting for it in my face hill

Otherwise known as my nose


I heard there is a mythical booger

And it's not icky or sticky or green

But gold and the size of a conker

And up until now it has never been seen


I've been picking for years in my mucus mines

Though I've often been told to stop

But I keep on going when nobody's looking

I can feel the gold one just waiting to drop


There was a point where I had gone too far

And had to be hospitalised

Because I'd got my whole hand stuck in there

But that's when they realised


My hand was pulled out all covered in goo

The contents placed in a pan so cold

And when they looked down I could hear them go ooh

Because laying there was my nose nugget of gold!
