Deep Cleanser

DeepCleanser(not tested on animals)

It’s a cold-sore sky.
A bus stops by
the seven signs, as aging
blackheads, whiteheads pore
(results may vary) from its door.
Puffy-eyed, skin crawls along
–moisture lasts all day long.
days clog, tone, drain
irritated skin cleansed by pain.
Lips crack…refresh…Grace
–apply liberally to face.
Where you need him most,
he travels deep:
works while you sleep.
