There are different reasons to get them
Cutis Anserina, the medically proper name
Whether cold, pleasure or sexual arousal
Goose bumps give us away just the same.
Even if we can explain what happens
To make that hair stand up on end
It might not make it any easier
To see the reaction from a friend.
I can hope that whenever it happens
That I brought it from a cause on fear
At least I’d be able to smile as to why
Maybe give reason to whisper in your ear.
Goose bumps are the body’s response
But let me follow them with finger tip
Sooner or later we’ll discover a source
Adding a smile or laugh or kiss on the lip.
