Out-of-office reply

Like the Bishop of Rouen before me,
I got my nose caught in a nutcracker
(spring-loaded) and had to be released
by a squad of burly pompiers.

On the principle that the nose knows best,
I won’t be rhyming for a few days.
Instead, I’ll be resting in Martinique,
with some mid-ranking clergy in attendance.
