Gag Reflex

Silly things can trigger
To a wave of something bigger

When a stranger picks their moment
Or a dewdrop starts to quiver

At the end of someone’s nose
Oh, how the feeling comes and goes

As I must struggle for supremacy
To govern the inclemency

Of gastric-led activity
Resulting in the tendency

To demonstrate my feeling
At what set the senses reeling

With unwanted strength of motion
And a curious devotion

As I fight the base sensation
To give in to native action

With a heaved determination
Overcome my true reaction
