The last time ever I touched my face,
The deed was done, rubbing my eyes,
But I soon was aware of the goof I’d made
From the news and the endless signs.

The last time ever I touched my mouth,
I felt the urge moving my hand
Like the programmed peck of a hatching bird
Whose escape its genes preplanned.

The last time ever I scratched my nose,
I felt my nostril so close at hand,
And I knew one snort could fill my lungs
With germs and no end of grime

The last time ever I touched
My face. My face. My face.
