I got a hair cut at last,

Before cold weather’s blast…

With grow-in time

Before autumn rime,

All I needed to do was ask!

You’ve heard of phantom pain,

When an amputated limb feels again…

Stray hair on the ear

Made it appear

That shagginess needed a tame!

My tufts on either side

Were not a matter of pride…

Balanced spoon on my nose

Gave impression one knows

Of  a koala, face supplied!
