Its been on the ebb since
I was knee-high to a tarantula and
While some say baldness and
Virility go hand in hand meaning
Eunuchs are spared, I'm the
Exception that proves the rule for
I would rarely let my hair down
Even when I had it.
An acolyte of hair tonics since
Billy Walker advertised Vitalis,
Dreams only echo my obsession, whether
Fatal entanglement in the
Snake hair of the Gorgon or the odd dusting by
The magic locks of Isis.
Last night I dreamed once more I was Samson but
On waking quite limp it was clear
Delilah had again
Overdone it with the shears.
I only hope the barbers re-open
While I still have some left
