You're Not Supposed to Touch Your Face by Kenn Nesbitt
You’re not supposed to touch your face,
but put your hands some other place,
to keep yourself from catching cold.
At least that’s what I’m often told.

They say that you can touch your thigh,
but never, ever wipe your eye.
It’s fine to touch your knee or shin,
but keep your fingers off your chin.

Your fingertips can hold your hips,
but shouldn’t slip between your lips.
Why, you can even rub your rear,
but hands should not go near your ear.

There’s just one problem I can see.
Though I’m allowed to touch my knee,
my arms, my legs, my feet, and toes,
I don’t know how I’ll pick my nose.
