I'm Getting A Sniffy Whiff

by LisaMay

Senses Contest Winner 

Mmmmm…. your pheromones 
are not to be sniffed at.
I have a nose for deception.
A rose by any other name 
is sweeter than getting a whiff
of olfactory abominations –
king’s corpses, plague poultices, decay, drains, your foul farts.
Something is rotten,
not just in Denmark, Mr Shakespeare.
I smell a rat.
