TAX REFUND SPLURGE
Is there a thing as phantom pain
For one’s missing hair?
Feels like a spider walking around
Behind my left ear there!
I had my hair professionally done,
It cost a decent dime…
But it looks and smells so good
I’m glad I took the time.
Normally, I’ll buzz cut myself,
Without a mirror I need my wife….
To tell me where are tufts I have missed
Or be embarrassed by not looking right.
On the way out from the barbershop,
A woman honked and waved….
She called out “see you, Honey”, I thought
What a nice looking friend I had made!
But she was calling to her daughter
Who had driven away a moment before…
If her daughter was a pretty as she was,
I wouldn’t have minded seeing more.
I let her red car go past me
As I walked along the downtown…
The breeze felt good on my newly shorn head,
So I really let my hair down(?)!
