Funny Poem About Growing Too Much Hair

I grew up listening to the Beatles. Besides music, they influenced a lot of teen culture, including long hair. There were times mine was past my shoulders! I wrote this story for children. It is silly, funny, cute and maybe a bit surrealistic. I hope they'll see that no matter how many turns their lives may take, there's always some way to adapt to them. It's for kids, but adults might get a kick out of it, too!

A Thing About Hair!

I've looked all over, but I don't know where
I got stuck with all this hair.
Some hair's where there once was none!
I must have more than anyone!

Hair on my head and hair on my toes,
Near and on and up my nose.
Hair in my ears and hair on my face.
That gosh darn hair's all over the place!

I got hair on my hands and on my hips,
Around my eyes and on my lips.
My tongue, my back, my chest and neck.
How can I keep this hair in check?!

It's under my arms, on top of 'em, too.

Maybe I'm in werewolf season!
Or maybe I'm a nice gorilla,
Bigfoot, bear or huge chinchilla!

Or maybe I'm a cute alpaca,
Or a racka... or Chewbacca!!
But one thing puts my mind at ease;
At least I don't have any fleas!!

So now, while looking in the mirror,
I see myself a little clearer.
A lot of hair is what I see.
"OMG!... It's really me!"

Know what? I like it, after all!
It cushions me if I should fall!
I know it may look awfully wild,
But better once I've had it styled.

A body perm might fill the bill
And really test a stylist's skill.
A dye job, too, would be attractive,
But that might be over reactive.

So, at the dresser's I will note,
"No, it's not a furry coat!
It's just my hair!" I'll say to him,
"Do your best, please... just a trim."



I was born, raised and have lived in southern Ontario, Canada all my life. In my teens I developed a keen interest in music, art and writing. I went to art school and eventually became a mildly successful graphic artist. But music, at that time, became my only true love. Mom bought me my first guitar with ten books of green stamps when I was...
