154 – On Beards And Other Matters

Poem number 154
.
On Beards And Other Matters
.
I have persistent stubble
My girlfriend gives me flack
I shave my beard off twice a day –
The bastard just grows back.
.
It’s a battle of attrition
It’s a war I cannot win
I know that I am going to lose
Before I yet begin.
.
So now from this day forward
I won’t shave my beard no more –
If the girlfriend doesn’t like it
Then I’ll help her through the door.
.
I’ll grow a beard like Birdseye’s
Big and bushy, wild and free
I’ll quit my job and buy a pipe
And head on out to sea
.
Sailors don’t need razors
It’s a hirsute life of joy
Farewell hours of shaving
Splice the mainbrace! Beard Ahoy!
