Nails

by Sally

Nails are round –
Some square & pointed.

They are long and short –
They are hard but nice.

You can decorate them with color
Red, green, blue – yet they
Remain where they were made,
On the fingers of the humans.

Yes – finder nails! –
Decorated with stones, polish,
They look so pretty –
Until they break! –

Quick! Get the glue – fix the break.
And cover the break with more
Nail camouflage –

But they are sharp –
Can hurt, scratch and cut.

Beware of those nails that are bare,
For they have nothing to lose in a fight.
