CHIN STRAP ITCH


CHIN STRAP ITCH

The greatest generation had the Messerschmitt* twitch,

We can assume the Rockefellers**  are very, very rich…

Where helmets stay on

Every night until the dawn,

The chin with the strap tends to itch.

-

Whether it is due to growing of the beard,

And overnight accumulated sweat never cleared…

One gets in a stitch

To scratch the itch,

Poking a hole in the chin is feared.

-

When sleeping with a C-PAP***

One often wears a chin strap…

The big treatment glitch

Is the old chin strap itch,

With lotion, the solving’s a snap!

—Jonathan Caswell

NOTES:  *Messerschmitt Twitch was due, in the early years of World War II., to the superior flying characteristics of the German fighter plane, the Messerschmitt (ME) 109.  A particularly effective tactic of German pilots was to use the superior speed and manuverability of the ME 109 to get behind an opponent’s plane, which was often slower with less pilot visibility.

**Rockefeller family of New York State.  Nelson Rockefeller was elected Governor of New York state during the Author’s growing up years.

***C-PAP Machine is used to assist breathing during sleep for those who have sleep apnea, to keep the soft palate in the back of the mouth and throat from closing off the passage to the windpipe, by the use of pressurized air.  An additional chin strap is sometimes used when a mask does not cover both mouth and nose—to keep the mouth from opening during the night and letting the pressurized air leak out.

THE INFORMATION HERE IS FROM THE AUTHOR’S OWN KNOWLEDGE, BUT CAN BE EASILY CONFIRMED BY DILIGENT RESEARCH OF PROPER REFERENCES.
