Socially Awkward Symptoms

It's on the tip of my nose,
Cold and wet.
The mucous makes my once
Smooth voice,
If I ignore the symptoms,
Will others notice?
Should I wipe it away?
I have only my hands,
No tissues.
Should I clear my throat like some
I wish I were an animal.
They don't have to worry about any of these social issues,
No matter how awkward or how full of bullshit they may be.
They don't fill out paperwork.
They don't pay taxes.
They don't vote.
And they certainly don't worry about going to war or paying hospital bills.
I hope in my next life to roam free as a fierce lion,
