Baldness


Baldness comes to men like me
And I am only twenty three
Few strands of hair upon my head
They know all the rest is dead

Baldness has its bonus too
And I will name just but a few
No gray hair for you to see
No cutting trimming and styling free

No shampoo to make it shine
Step out the shower it dries just fine
To all the vain men out there
Do not worry you have lost your hair

I wish for baldness on my face
So I can stop my morning shave
Because in the shower I could go
And shower gel from head to toe
The only hair is down below

    I can’t sleep so I’m here and it’s 1 o’clock in the morning I’m just passing time I liked your poem Jim.
    It really is quite fine. I’m imagining you in the shower shampooing from head to toe. Sorry Jim I’m getting tired now, so I’ll say good night and go. Very good poem 10 from me (Report) Reply

    A VERY funny write Jim.
    A cute poem on a problem that seems to affect young men these days barely out of their teenage years, and informing those concerned about the many advantages of being bald.
    Very well written and a 10 from me. (Report) Reply
