Tears by Tiny Dancer

I’ve always wondered
Why tears should only come out of your eyes
And if there’s a secret supply of tears
Hidden away in the back of your head

But if
If tears were stored away in the back of your head
like storage, but with water
A water tower in your head
your brain
And when you cried
the tears would pour out of your
Nose
and your
Mouth
and your ears, too

So I guess it’s a good thing you have tearducts
because if tears came from your
Nose,
and your
Mouth
and your ears, too
you would drown
in your tears

And there would be a whole new meaning to the saying
“Drowning in your sorrow”
