Peter Piper Unpacks His Trunk

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepper
As virtually everybody knows
What's less well known and should be somewhat better
Is that Peter Piper also picked his nose.

He excavated with his index finger
He mined his nasal cavities quite deep
He dug around and let his finger linger
He even probed his nostrils in his sleep.

But though his Mother warned him of the danger
Peter Piper was oblivious to harm
He would pick his nose in front of friend or stranger
And chew his bogies quite devoid of qualm.

Peter Piper's mum whose name was Beryl
She tried to save her one and only son
But Peter Piper would not heed the peril
For picking noses can be endless fun.

She took him to the Doctor, who informed her
That he'd rarely seen a case of this so bad
“It's called rhinotillexomania
I'm afraid your son is well and truly mad.”

So Beryl told her son that he was ravin’
And that if he didn't pull his finger out
“Like as not your head will have a cave in
Of that there's really very little doubt.”

But Peter Piper disbelieved this theory
He thought it would be easy to debunk
For his habit kept him occupied and cheery
So he continued the unpacking of his trunk.

One day when Beryl went upstairs to wake him
She found Peter Piper permanently dead
For just as she had sadly often warned him
There was nothing left in Peter Piper’s head.

So heed well Peter's cautionary story
There are habits in this life you should avoid
I'm sorry if you find this subject gory
But your head should be full up, and not a void.

Moderate nasal picking's-not an issue
In fact it can achieve some modest gains
Dispose your excavations in a tissue
And don't, like Peter Piper, pick your brains.
