My nose has an intruder, it is a nasty booger.

Green, slimy mucus, I do not want you. You seem useless.

But I know that your mucus is useful; actually it is crucial, if I’m truthful.

Why, you ask? Well, you see mucus has a valuable task.

The nose is exposed to millions of tiny particles, it is kind of remarkable.

Mucus acts as the body’s natural filter, it detects if something entering the nose is unfamiliar.

Germs, dust, or pollen try to enter, but the mucus blocks the lung tormentors.
