Off, damned nail! Off I say
One toe, two toes, the nail is frayed
Tis time to clip it, my sight is dim
I fear I’ll miss and cleave a limb!
I’d just been to the nail salon
All hanging frill should now be gone
But dull beautician on a whim
Did miss that I had much to trim
I wail, they fail, to cut that nail
And now I leave a bloody trail
Do not they know my day is ruined
As I feel this nail will ne’er be pruned!
No more I’ll go, I won’t return
If they implore, their claims I’ll spurn
Here’s the spot of blood seen still
Oust stain? No detergent will
Oh oh oh, I must not flail
Just take the shears, cut off that nail!
No one’s come to save the day
I need to get it out my way
Then such relief and off to bed
It’s not like I’m removing head
A drama queen, like Dame MacBeth
Such fuss, you’d think I faced down death!
Come on be done, I won’t impale
Be brave and snip that curs-ed nail!
