Said the Foot to the Eye

One day some body parts out of dissatisfaction,
decided they needed to take drastic action.
Said the foot to the eye, "let's trade places today,
I'll sneak a peek while you walk away!"

Said the hands to the mouth, "I'll be you for awhile."
the mouth tried to clap as the hands tried to smile.
said the nose to the ear, "you can sniff around today,
I want to hear what people say."

Confusion soon followed, and great distress,
because they concocted a dysfunctional mess!
"Stop this at once," the Lord interjected,
"you each have a purpose which I have perfected."

"You need to perform in peaceful accord,
like a symphony orchestra", said the Lord.

I suppose you know what the last line will be?
I won't try to be YOU, so don't try to be ME!

My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
