Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Little children and runny noses; you see it all the time.

Tissue, please!

I hate the look of
Snot under a small child's nose
Waiting to be licked

Lowku Poem writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
A Lowku is an unrhymed, three-line, 5-7-5 poem. The subject of Lowku is something gross, nasty, or disgusting we find in everyday life. Provide an accompanying picture that very closely correlates to the Lowku.

Remember when you were very little, big enough to run and play, but not old enough to be let loose by yourself, chasing after the older children? How you ran with abandon and didn't consider things like bathroom breaks or runny noses? In the midst of your play, there was always that second when tongue went toward nose - yuch! Then you went for sleeve or tissue.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
